Are you aged between 12-17? Do you fancy yourself as the next Jamie Oliver?

If the answer to the above is yes then Hitchin Tilehouse Rotary Club's Young Chef of the Year competition could be for you.

Taking place on January 27, 2007, at North Hertfordshire College in Hitchin, it is an opportunity for young people in Comet country to compete against each other in the local heat of a national competition. Entrants will have to prepare a healthy, well balanced, two-course meal for two within a budget of £10.

Last year's winner Adam Clarkson, a student at Stratton Upper School, in Biggleswade, won a day in Pennyhill Park Hotel's kitchen with local chef Andrew Turner, one of the judges for the competition. Adam also went on to compete in the national finals in Loughborough and although he didn't win he said that it was an 'amazing experience' which has encouraged him to look at a career in cooking.

Runners-up prizes also include signed cookery books and vouchers.
