Three budding chefs from Huntingdonshire have taken part in the district final of a Rotary competition.
Joanna Circus, Hazel Sterling and Jasmine Butler were among 15 youngsters cooking three-course meals for judges at Hinchingbrooke School last month.
Each of the competitors, who were all aged 17 and under, had won separate contests organised by Rotary clubs.
For her three courses, Joanna, who had won the St Ives heat, made tomato and basil soup, chicken supreme and creme brulee.
Hazel, who was the winner at Ramsey, made leek and potato soup, chicken stir fry and “healthy” cupcakes.
