Chef James selected for top award

We’re thrilled with the news that Head Chef, James Lowe, has been selected for the prestigious LACA School Chef of the Year award. 

James will prepare a two-course meal – of Courgette, carrot and chickpea potato rosti served with poached egg, mozzarella croquettes, cheese sauce and salsa, followed by a ‘Downside Royal Charlie’, a fruit flavoured layered panna cotta set in a swiss roll dome – at the regional heat, in Bristol, next week. 

He said of the experience, “It’s exciting to take part and it highlights what we’re already doing here at the school. I’ve chosen a vegetarian menu as this is something I’m passionate about; vegetarian and vegan food is popular with the pupils, too“.  We’ll be keeping fingers and toes crossed… good luck, James!
