This year we held our School Heat on Tuesday 4th December. We had 5 pupils competing on the day, creating a wonderful ‘Fish Pie with a twist’. We are generously supported by Longniddry Rotary club in running this competition, with both organisation and funding, which is greatly appreciated by the Home Economics department. They also organised the judge for the event – Derek Johnstone – Executive Chef at Greywalls Hotel, Gullane. Derek was very impressed with the standard of cooking and found it very difficult to pick the eventual winner.
The winner was – Shelby Dalgliesh (S5)
With runner up – Katie Patterson (S3)
Shelby will represent the school in the next round on Friday 25th January 2013, hopefully Katie will also get an entry at this level, but spaces are dependent on the number of schools competing.
