Lynn Hawdon named School Chef of the Year

06 April 2006

Waltzing TV chef James Martin looks on as Lynn Hawdon cooks her way to the Local Authority Caterers Association 2006 School Chef of the Year title.

Hawdon, who works at Middleton-in-Teesdale Field Study Centre in Durham, was limited to a budget of 80p per meal. She rustled up a main course of aromatic Teesdale lamb, couscous and oven-roasted vegetables and a dessert of apple and bilberry smoothie with
home-made shortbread.

Martin led the eight-strong judging panel at the final, which was held at Birmingham College of Food, Tourism and Creative Studies last week.
