Marston Green Chef Shortlisted for School Chef of the Year
The chef at Marston Green Infants Academy in Solihull is among 10 finalists shortlisted to compete for the title of School Chef of the Year 2016.
Jose Davies Kochakkadan, who was recently named West Midlands School Chef of the Year 2016, will compete against Britain’s other regional top chefs for this prestigious award on Thursday 10 March at Stratford upon Avon College.
The competition, organised by the Lead Association for Catering in Education (LACA) is the flagship event for school chefs to showcase their professional skills.
The 10 chefs will devise their own menu and showcase their culinary flair to a panel of judges consisting of catering professionals, last year’s award winner and an 11-year-old boy and girl from a West Midlands school. Many of their dishes have been inspired by cuisine stretching from the Americas to Europe, Asia and the Far East.
