On Saturday 16 November 2013, once again the Design and Technology block was buzzing when Marling School hosted the Inter School Rotary Chef competition 2013/14.

Marling School students competed against the Stroud High School girls for a place in the district competition to be held in January.   Representing Marling School were Year 10 Hospitality and Catering students; Alex Egan, Toby Beardsley, Alexander Smith and George Hayes. Ben Creed represented the Year 11 group.  

Alexander Smith impressed the judges with his Risotto and Autumnal fruit compote topped with a crisp crumble accompanied with crème anglaise and was awarded first place by the judges.

Toby Beardsley successfully demonstrated magnificent spun sugar skills which he used to finish his individual cheese cakes.  Melt in the mouth brownies were made by Alex Egan which were served with shots of amaretto cream. Ben produced short crust pastry with ease and his pear pastry tartlets were light and crisp.  George made stunning lattice chicken pies and his dessert a light lemon cheese cake had a crisp biscuit base accompanied by a creamy citrus kick.

“The contribution the Marling School students made to the event was outstanding. Their standard of work was really high. I was not only amazed by the level of skill and commitment that they all demonstrated but also by the professional manner in which they worked. It was a real pleasure to be involved.” Competition Judge, Vanessa Mole, Sodexo General Manager

“Thank you so much for persuading my son to take part in the competition. It has boosted his confidence enormously and impressed the chef he works for at weekends.” Parent of Marling School
