Woolavington veterinary nurse reaches 'disaster chef' final
A WOOLAVINGTON veterinary nurse has reached the final of a nationwide search to find Britain’s most disastrous cook.
After six weeks of culinary sweat and tears, Rachael Gibson has been named one of the six finalists in Kenwood’s Disaster Chef competition.
With the help of a weekly food hamper from Sainsbury’s and video tutorials from Kenwood, Rachael has been gradually learning key skills, including making dough and meringues, to transform her cooking from inedible to incredible.
She said: “I can’t believe I have made it to the final of the Kenwood Disaster Chef competition. Over the past six weeks, my confidence has grown and grown and I hope that, with the help of the Kenwood experts, I am able to transform my cooking skills enough to win.”
Over the next six weeks, Rachael will learn more complex skills, including making Choux pastry and homemade pasta, to go head to head with five other finalists and prove she has what it takes to be crowned Kenwood Chef 2013.
The winner will be chosen by a judging panel, including former Celebrity Masterchef winner, Liz McClarnon, and will receive prizes such as a kitchen makeover worth £3,000, a cookery course worth £500, and a selection of Kenwood products.
Martin Johns, Kenwood Development Chef, says: “We know the kitchen can be a daunting place for some people, but Rachael has shown she is prepared to roll up her sleeves and give it a go – and she seems to be having fun on this journey, which is ultimately what cooking should be all about.”
