Two female chefs from Preston are through to the finals of a national cooking competition.


Krstya Jimenez and Megan Prince are the North West representatives in the UK young seafood chef of the year competition.

The pair made their dishes of cured sweet chilli salmon, massala spiced herring and fillet of turbot for the judges.

Both are student at Preston College studying professional cookery level two.

Debra Hill, assistant head of hospitality and catering at Preston College, said: “High profile competitions such as this are a great way for our students to really showcase their work and skill level to industry specialists and even potential employers.

“We’re very proud of Krysta and Megan who both put in very strong performances against the other competitors, some of which are studying on Level 3 courses. We wish them the best of luck for the final.”

The Grimsby Institute of Further and Higher Education organises the competition, which is in its 15th year.

The prize for the winner is £500 for each team member and £1,000 of vouchers for the winning college.
