Two Stewartry girls have made it through to the Rotary 1020 District Young Chef Final after being named winner and runner up of the area final.
Nicole Geddes from Dalbeatie presented a main course of Greek chicken and a lime and chocolate creams dessert and won the area final against four others.
Claiming the runner up position was Karlie Jamieson who presented a main course of tarragon chicken and a peach crumble dessert.
The two girls were up against another two girls and a boy. The competition this year was jointly sponsored by the Rotary Clubs involved and also by Castle MacLellan Foods Limited. They provided some very smart aprons as well as goodie bags and prize money for the winners.
A further prize offered by Castle MacLellan will be the opportunity for the winner of this area competition, and the winner of the earlier local Kirkcudbright event, Ailsa McCulloch, to spend a day working with the development chef in the development kitchen at Castle MacLellan Foods Limited in Kirkcudbright in the New Year.
The district final is on February 6 in Livingston.
