A talented young chef from Loreto College Coleraine has won through to the All Ireland Final of the 2015 RIBI Young Chef of the Year competition, organised by Rotary UK and Ireland.

Victoria Tsang, who is in Year 11 at Loreto College, cooked a complex and adventurous menu for a panel of judges at the regional final of the event, held in Grosvenor Grammar School, Belfast, on Saturday 7th February.  Victoria was one of three students who won through to the All Ireland Final, which will be held in Dublin on 27th February.

Mrs Sinead McNicholl, Head of Home Economics at Loreto College, paid tribute to colleague Mrs Mabel McAleese, who had worked with Victoria on developing her menu as well as advising her on the execution and presentation of her chosen dishes.  Mrs McNicholl also paid tribute to Victoria for her hard work and dedication in preparing for the event, and her calmness under pressure on the day.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, congratulated Victoria and her Home Economics teachers on this outstanding achievement and wished them well for the final round of the competition.
