Written by: Edward Waddell
The Winners of UK Young Restaurant Team of the Year were announced at a Gala Awards Dinner at the Skills for Chefs Conference on 30 June.

The all-female team of Caitlin McGrath, Grace McGreal and Riley Monk cooked and served a three-course French menu to four Restaurant guests and additional dishes for the judges.

Darren Creed, who mentored the trio, said: “It was a phenomenal performance from the students, they are dedicated and such a pleasure to mentor, they have put in a great deal of work into this amazing competition.”

The winner’s trophy was presented to Loughborough College by Pierre Koffmann and chair of judges Vicky Enderson.

Enderson added: “We had some outstanding dishes at the Grand Final, worthy of note being the starter from The Sheffield College, the main course from City of Glasgow College and the dessert from Eastleigh College, dishes that could appear on any award winning restaurant menu. It was the consistency over all three courses and a fantastic service that gave Loughborough College the overall win.”

The winning team will embark on a study tour to Lyon in October that includes a visit to the Institute of Paul Bocuse.
