Phoebe wins Yes Chef Competition

We have received a really nice message from Toby and Mitzi Collins who wanted to acknowledge the fantastic community spirit offered by Sam and his staff at La Perle for a fellow Milford on Sea resident.

Toby and Mitzi felt that Sam and her team were the perfect mentors for daughter, Phoebe as she went on to win the Yes Chef competition in Bournemouth organised by the Enterprise and Skills Company and sponsored by Harvest Fine Foods. 

The Yes Chef Competition started with 150 students and was whittled down to four finalists at The Sandbanks Hotel in Poole.

The finalists worked in a professional kitchen and produced their dishes for guests including the Mayor of Bournemouth, Dr Karen Arnold, Queens Award for Enterprise and Richard Strongman, Managing Director of Harvest Fine Foods.

Phoebe who is in Year 9 at Bournemouth School for girls contacted Sam owner of La Perle restaurant in Milford on Sea for some tips on her dishes and he very kindly met with her and invited her in to practise her dishes with himself and Jo.

Phoebe was so thrilled with the interest they took in her competition and the knowledge and generosity of time they gave.

Phoebe's prize was a set of professional knives, an opportunity to open the Bournemouth Food Festival (while possibly demonstrating one of her dishes) and all four finalists have been invited to provide afternoon tea for local dignitaries in the Mayor of Bournemouth's parlour.

Well done Phoebe, another excellent chef in the making in Milford on Sea - there will also be a slot available to you in the Food Week Cookery Theatre in 2018!
