Aimed at supporting young people to build industry-standard culinary skills and knowledge, as well as connecting them with industry professionals, SB Future Chef is a UK-wide free initiative for 11-16 year-olds who are studying hospitality within a school setting or senior phase programme at college.

Harvey Steed, 15, impressed the judges with his winning dish of salmon fillet with harissa-spiced cous cous, pineapple and red pepper chutney. He was also commended for arriving well-prepared with pristine PPE and remaining focused throughout the 60 minutes of judges’ questioning.

Harvey will now move on to the next stage of the competition – the regional finals in Elgin on February 7 where he will compete against other budding chefs from Moray, Aberdeen and Inverness areas for a place in the national final.

Harvey is being mentored by Dundee and Angus College Hospitality and Professional Cookery lecturer Debbie Robson.

She said: “Harvey has shown great potential in the kitchen. His confidence in his own abilities has excelled throughout his preparations. However, on the day, he still couldn’t believe he had won! I have no doubt he will do well in the next stages of the competition and in his future career.”

Harvey added: “I- m looking forward to working with my lecturer throughout the next stages and I am going to continue practising my dishes at home too.”
