Organised by the college, the competition saw six finalists from across the UK cooked their own chosen menus watched by former Thanet college students, celebrity chef Gary Rhodes and Scott Goss of The Swan, West Malling. Simon Bean, senior land-based chef at P&O was also judge.
Allsworth, 14, who attends Highsted Grammar School consisted of wild sea bass, apple wood smoked potato and roasted belly pork, with a dessert of lemon tart accompanied by an orange salad and lemon thyme mascarpone.
Rhodes presented Allworth with her prizes which included, the coveted trophy, a book signed by Rhodes and £300.
"I didn't expect to win at all, it means so much to me. After I finish school, I want to come to Thanet College to study catering," said Allworth.
Second place was awarded to Christopher Mottershed from Yorkshire, third to Annabel Gray, Norwich with the remaining finalists Rachel Jardine, Northern Ireland, Peter Cragg, Isle of White and Jacques Verite form Southport College.
- "As each year passes the contestants are getting more and more confident, taking on things that I've never seen before. Everybody has something on their plate that shines through," Rhodes commented after the event.
