Congratulations to York College Patisserie & Confectionery student Finn Hockenhull, winner of the Junior Chef competition at York’s Food Festival 2019.

Finn Hockenhull Junior Chef comp winner 2019WEB
Using seasonal and local produce, Finn had one hour to prepare and cook a two course meal at the Food Festival. He served up Lamb rump with mashed potato, chantilly carrots, broccoli and pea puree for mains with a dessert of Tarte Tatin with cream.

Finn is a full-time hospitality student and he works at the Durham Ox in Crayke at the weekends. He enjoyed cooking in St Sampsons Square during the Festival: “I had practiced the dishes and felt confident cooking in front of an audience. It was a great experience and one that I can put on my CV in the future. My aim is to work in the hospitality industry, whilst travelling, perhaps working on a cruise ship or luxury yacht!”

At York's Food Festival, watch out for Head Chef Pete Harrison (from Ashfields training restaurant, York College) and Hospitality tutor Graham Fyfe, giving a cooking demonstration on Saturday 28th September in Sampsons Square.
