Young Aylsham chef nets place in national fish-dish contest final
A young Aylsham woman is among four budding masterchefs from City College Norwich who will go on to represent the city in the national finals of a culinary contest to find the best fish dish.
Lauren Goodyear, 19, a chef at the Crown pub in Banningham, is a member of two college teams who impressed judges at their college's Debut restaurant this week, earning their finals place.
The winning teams, who are taking City College's Vocationally Related Qualification, were among six from colleges across the region who were given a choice of fish from which to create a starter, an intermediate and a main course to impress the panel, which included Brasted's chef Chris Busby and Daniel Savage from Caistor Hall.
Speaking before the judges made their decisions, third-year student Miss Goodyear and her team mate Sarah Griffiths, 18, from Hethersett, explained how they were hoping to impress with their trio of smoked haddock themed menu which included kedgeree with smoked quails egg, haddock pate with Melba toast and miniature fish and chips with a pea puree.
'We were pleased, it went down fairly well; we liked it,' said Miss Goodyear.
