Emma wins District Rotary young chef competition

Emma Sturrock created a fantastic array of dishes to take top spot in the Rotary Young Chef District final held on Sunday at Edinburgh School of Food and Wine at Kirkliston.

Her winning menu was praised by the Judges as superb, especially the tarte au citron which was in a class of it’s own.

  •  Creamy parsnip and apple soup with chestnuts, parsnip crisps and parmesan twists

  • Sea bass en papillote with carrot, leek, ginger on crushed potatoes and a watercress puree
  • Tarte au citron with a raspberry coulis

Emma had tuition from Derek Johnstone, Executive Head Chef at Greywalls who will continue to work with her in preparation for the next round.

Emma won a beautiful trophy plus a week’s course at the Cookery school.

Emma will now take on the whole of Scotland and the North of England in the Regional competition on Sunday 18th March.

Congratulations to Emma and thanks to her parents and Longniddry and District rotary for all their support.
