Video highlights from the 2009 YCYW finals

Last week, Rose Greene from Le Champignon Sauvage in Cheltenham and Sarah Cooper from London's Ledbury became the Restaurant Association's 2009 Young Chef Young Waiter winners.

The pair were declared the victors of the annual competition at an awards ceremony held at London's Jumeirah Carlton Tower hotel, after a hotly contested cook-and-serve competition at London's Westminster Kingsway College.

It is the first time that two female competitors have won both titles in the 25-year history of the Young Chef Young Waiter competition. Greene, who came second last year, took the chef title, with Cooper walking away with the waiting title.
