Last Friday Nabil and Waseem, winners of the 2018 Reg Johnson Young Chef Competition, cooked for the High Sheriff and the Dean’s Banquet at Blackburn Cathedral.
The black tie banquet raised funds for the cathedral’s appeal, and featured entertainment from the Lancashire Artillery Band, and the Blackburn Choristers. Additionally Bill Beaumont CBE delivered a fascinating speech.
Serving the top table was just one of the amazing opportunities Waseem and Nabil have taken part in since their big win.
Both students were invited to dine at Northcote during the summer break, and took part in Blackburn’s National Festival of Making in May, where their winning dishes were served to the festival goers.
