TALENTED young cooks from a number of schools took part in a young chef competition at LVS Ascot.

Winner Amy Price, 15, dazzled the judges with her Italian theme and she went on to compete at Newbury College two days later.

Six children from LVS, Ranelagh, Luckley House, and Easthampstead Park participated.

Amy was awarded a trophy for her efforts, after serving up pasta and a tasty lemon meringue tart dessert.

She has since been invited to visit Bluebell restaurant to watch their chefs at work.

Bake Off contestant Martha Collision took part in the same competition.
