House events at The Earls are many and varied and the latest event was House Master Chef. It was a wonderful evening of feverish creative activity as the four teams did their very best to provide the judges with food to tickle their fancy. Mr Loveday and Mr Brook (standing in for John Torode and Greg Wallace) found something to like in each menu and were blown away by the flavours and textures of the food produced. Huge congratulations to everyone who was involved and particular thanks to Mrs Mallin and Mrs Williams and the Heads of House who supported the student teams.
The Senior House Master Chef teams worked really effectively together to produce skillful, tasty and attractive 2 course meals within an hour. The results were very close and all teams deserve to be congratulated on their efforts and their excellent team work.
