Blidworth learners in MasterChef competition

Succulent steak, sunset quesadillas and tangy chicken drumsticks were just some of the delicious meals cooked by R.E.A.L. learners as they took part in a MasterChef competition.

Before the summer holidays, learners had spent the final term researching and planning what meal they wanted to make in preparation for putting on their aprons for the big day. 

Tutor Joanne McGonigle said: “I’m so unbelievably proud of our learners, I want to say a massive well done to them.”

The learners were judged on the taste, texture, appearance, smell and skill set used for their dish and won a certificate and award for their efforts.

Joanne added: “It was Stacey Edward’s fabulous idea to include this in the KS2/KS3 curriculum. A big thank you to her and all the judges and tutors involved who ensured the day ran smoothly and helped the learners achieve the outcomes they did.”

The full menu and awards can be found below, but be warned, you’re likely to feel very hungry afterwards!
