Absolute Taste Scholarship winner revealed

Seventeen-year-old Glen Sharman has won the Absolute Taste Scholarship to train at The Tante Marie School of Cookery for a Cordon Bleu Diploma worth £15,000.

Former GCSE student Sharman has been plucked from his NVQ2 Professional Cookery course in Guildford College to take part in the 12-month course as well as undertake work experience with sponsor and caterer Absolute Taste.

Sharman said: "From a very early age, I had a dream that my future will in some way involve food and cooking. My ambition is to become a top class chef in my own restaurant.

"I never imagined I would have the opportunity to apply to such a prestigious college, let alone have the chance in a lifetime to become a student there."

Marcella O'Donovan, principal of Tante Marie, said: "We were captivated by Glen - his enthusiasm for food and all things culinary and his genuine excitement at the thought of training at Tante Marie and being associated with Lyndy at Absolute Taste.

"He had done his homework on both the school and Absolute Taste and he was impressive for one so young."

Absolute Taste managing director and former Tante Marie student Lyndy Redding added: "It was important to award the scholarship to someone who would clearly have the passion and commitment to succeed and aspire to our standards of excellence at Absolute Taste."

Applications for the scholarship beginning in September 2008 are being accepted now by Tante Marie and will be considered next June.
