A St Albans pupil has gone through to the next round of the Rotary Young Chef Competition 2018.

Amanda Garcia-Ghuran of St Albans High School for Girls was crowned winner for St Albans in the competition at Oaklands College, held on Wednesday, November 21.

She made a meal for two consisting of filo pastry cups filled with marinated prawns, followed by a ballotine of chicken legs with Toulouse sausages.

Aishani Joshi came second with a vegetable kebab and Aloo paratha.

St Albans Mayor Cllr Rosemary Farmer congratulated all those who took part in the competition, praised their high standard and said that they had clearly enjoyed the experience.

The competition was judged by Paul Wood from Oaklands College and was also attended by Gopi Chandran, the executive chef at Sopwell House Hotel.

Amanda will represent St Albans at the next stage of the competition in February.

I should probably have taken the hint! Walking out into the garden recently an unprecedented flock of thirty or more crows raucously greeted me from the treetops at the bottom of my garden. Cawing and croaking these big, black birds clung clumsily to the top most branches and twigs, jostling and flapping to stay balanced in a constant flurry of feathers. There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
