 Mount House School, Hertfordshire, welcomed Michelin star chef Adam Byatt who owns Trinity, one of London’s top restaurants and who has also starred in TV Programme Great British Menu to take part in the Mount House School Cook Off, an event that takes place each year at the school.
The stage set used allowed the whole audience to see all the food preparation and cooking from the specially placed overhead mirrors.
Cook Off contestants were 6th Former Niamh Reilly along with the Head, Matthew Burke. Each was given a tray of ingredients including salmon, vegetables and marmite with 20 minutes to make a dish.
The dishes were judged by who had the loudest cheer, and Niamh won!
Adam also went on to judge the dishes and said that Matthew’s looked very good but Niamh’s tasted better.
