Jin Phung, a Bishop’s Stortford College Senior School pupil, impressed judges at the cook-off held at Chelmsford College

They commented on the methodical way he conducted his cooking and the fact he never lost focus or his cool, and it was no surprise that he was declared the winner.

The judges gave feedback to all the competitors, but especially to Jin, whom they all felt “could go all the way”.

The 16-year-old – who received a set of balanced but very sharp knives and a chef’s jacket – will now go forward to represent the district in the regional competition at Westminster College. He will be mentored by Shane King, a professional chef, who will be visiting Bishop’s Stortford College to critique his cooking after half-term.
