Helena Stimson Wins Local Area Final of

Springboard Future Chef Competition


Recently Helena Stimson and Amber Arnold competed in the local area final of the Springboard Future Chef Competition held at South Devon College. Both girls did well to get to the area final but it was Helena who won!

Helena held off stiff competition in a very closely contested round remaining focused throughout. She prepared two dishes for the judges. Her main course was a black bean plantain chili with courgette fritters and cornbread.  The judges were impressed with her use of plantain. For dessert Helena served plum cake with homemade custard.

Helena now progresses to the Regional Final which is held at Petroc in Tiverton on Thursday February 8th against competitors from Cornwall, Somerset, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Bristol.

Helena also has the opportunity to be mentored by the Head Chef of Boringdon Hall, Scott Paton
