On the 12th January, two of Walton High's most talented chefs took part in the local regional finals of the Springboard Masterchef Cooking competition. Chelsea Holmes and Holly Taylor competed against students from other schools and catering colleges with the aim of winning a place in the Regional Final. Both have spent many hours after school working on their dishes and techniques.
Holly chose to cook a classic fish dish, Plaice Meuniere and a very technical pudding (Strawberry Croustillant). Chelsea cooked Chicken Ballotine with a mushroom sauce and the French classic " Ile Flotant" (floating island) with a spun sugar garnish.
Both performed exceptionally well and their dishes impressed the judges.

All the hot gamblers are in town, and they're all depending on Nathan Detroit to set up this week's incarnation of "The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York"; the only problem is, he needs $1000 to get the place. Throw in Sarah Brown, who's short on sinners at the mission she runs; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan's $1000 bet that he can't get Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her; and Police Lieutenant Brannigan, who always seems to appear at the wrong time, and the stage is set for this year’s Walton High production.
