BA Pupil Cooking Up A Storm

Beth Morrow Year 11 GCSE student at Banbridge Academy has been on a culinary adventure. Beth entered the first round of the Springboard future chef at Newry Southwest college where she prepared Pan-Fried Gnocchi with winter greens all within 1 hour timeslot.  Beth sadly was not selected as the winner of the day but was commended for her highly skilful dish. However, after all the regional finals took place across Northern Ireland Beth was appointed as the Wild Card Winner.

After winning the Wild Card entry, Beth began working with local Head Chef Ciaran Sansone of The Seagoe Hotel to prepare for the next round. After a month of long hours and plenty of training Beth went to the Titanic Met and went head-to-head against 7 other pupils from regions across Northern Ireland. Within an hour and a half Beth produced Northern Irish Chicken Supreme with Winter Greens, Chicken Leg Beignet and a Yoghurt and Lemon Panna Cotta served with a Honey, Nut Tuille.

This was not yet the end of Beth’s culinary adventures as she was invited to cook live at the Love Your Food Show at Belfast Titanic Exhibition Centre. Beth cooked alongside chef Jack O’Keefe from Ireland AM. She produced a beautiful White Chocolate Mousse Mille Feuille with Raspberry Elderflower Jellies.
