Bridgend College was delighted to host the 2018 Future Chef competition in our on-site Seasons restaurant on 12 January.

Springboard’s FutureChef helps young people aged 12-16 to learn to cook. It inspires them to explore food and cooking as a life skill by developing their culinary talent and informing them about entry routes into the hospitality industry.

Five finalists took part, and congratulations go to the winner Megan Hitchen from Stanwell School and runner-up Mackenzie Jenkins, aged 12 from Porthcawl Comprehensive. The judges were Tommy Heaney from the Great House in Bridgend, Gareth Thomas from Rational UK and Kevin Tombes from Frima UK.
