Prithvi Sudarshan (F3) secured himself a place in the regional final of the Future Chef competition by winning last week’s HSD heat. 

The competition was hotly contested, with the efforts of four pupils from Form 3: Mitchell Clark, Cameron Brown, Prithvi Sudarshan and Zoe Loveday, resulting in a dead heat, which saw Prithvi and Zoe go through to a cook-off.

Zoe cooked a delicious sounding turkey macaroni with gruyere garlic bread, but it was ultimately Prithvi’s pan fried cod with asparagus and pea and mint purée that wowed the judge, Elior HSD Development Chef, Greg Johnston and took home the bacon.

The Future Chef competition is the biggest school culinary competition in the UK, celebrating talent in S3-S5 aged pupils, and encouraging them to break into the hospitality industry. 

Health and Food Technology teacher Lesley Ross said, “The Future Chef competition encourages creativity, the development of culinary skills, and resilience. We had a very closely fought competition with a superb standard of finished dishes on display.”

Prithvi will be mentored by Greg Johnston ahead of the next stage, which takes place at Dundee and Angus College early next year

Good luck, Prithvi, and well done to all our competitors!
