South Belfast student swaps the classroom for the kitchen

A student at Malone Integrated College in south Belfast has cooked up the perfect recipe for success.

Rebecca Luff is through to the grand final of the ‘Sixth Form Survivor Challenge’, after impressing judges with her delicious dish of bacon and noodle stir fry.

She will now join four other finalists from across Northern Ireland in a cook-off to find the winner of the recipe challenge.

The competition has been organised by the Food Standards Agency (FSA) and encourages sixth form students to learn all aspects of cooking, including healthy eating and basic hygiene.

FAS communications manager, Elaine Donaghy, congratulated Rebecca on her culinary creation.

“We have had a fantastic response from students all over Northern Ireland who have been busy practising recipes and entering them online,” she said.

Rebecca has done really well to make it to the final as we had a very high standard of recipes to judge from.”

The winner will receive £250 in Clockwork Orange vouchers and their school will be given £1,000 worth of home economics equipment and a bespoke award.

Four runners up will each receive £50 in Clockwork Orange vouchers along with an award for their school.

The grand final is being hosted by celebrity chef James Martin (pictured) at the Ulster Museum on March 23.
