The competition was to encourage young people, aged 12 to 17, to develop their cookery skills, food presentation, consider healthy eating options, expand their organisational and planning skills and learn to cope with a demanding situation.

Adam's prize included a day in the kitchen of Andrew Turner, head chef at the Bentley Kempinski Hotel in London, and meal and mobile phone vouchers as well as a certificate.
