Bucks County Council chairman Carl Etholen has praised students from the county’s schools after they cooked what he described as a ‘gastronomic’ meal at the chairman’s gala dinner.

Students from Princes Risborough School were among those who cooked, prepared and served the four-course meal at The Great Bucks Menu gala dinner at Sir William Ramsay High School in High Wycombe.

The event raised over £2,500 for Young Carers Bucks with some money also going towards setting up more after-school chefs clubs across Bucks.

A highlight of the night included the presentation of certificates to all the pupils involved by Cllr Etholen who said: “It was a fantastic evening that gave the young people the opportunity to excel in practising their culinary skills.

“I felt that the youngsters fulfilled what they set out to do and produced a gastronomic meal which was to a very high standard of cuisine similar to a top class restaurant.”

Bill Bendyshe-Brown, deputy cabinet member for education and skills said: “I would also like to add my thanks to the children involved.

“Chef’s clubs are important as they help to teach children life skills, an area I feel passionately about.

“The funds from the evening will help us to run a number of chefs clubs in targeted areas across the county, which I hope more children and their families will be able to benefit from.”

The other schools that took part were St Joseph’s Catholic Primary, Sir William Ramsay and Beaconsfield High.
