Casterbridge Rotary Club’s Young Chef 2016-17, Nik Jones, travelled to Shaftesbury School on Saturday 1st April to compete in the Regional Final of RIBI Young Chef 2016-17. Despite his enthusiasm, skill and innovative menu, Nik was not chosen to go forward to the National Final. There were some very talented Young Chefs and no doubt the judges did not have an easy decision! The winner was Jonny Smith representing Gosport Rotary Club and the Runner-up was Isabella Darmanin representing Havant Rotary Club. Nik was supported by his uncle, five Casterbridge Rotarians and partners and his teacher from Thomas hardy School, Sally Voss. They were all very proud of him and wish him well for the future in his career as a chef. It is hoped that Nik will be helping to cook at a Young Chefs’ Celebration evening in September.
