JCoSS student cooks for HRH Prince Charles

My name is Guy Sherman I am in year 10 and have a passion for cooking. Recently I entered a competition for Waitrose which was hosted by HRH Prince Charles celebrating 25 years of Duchy Organic products. The brief was to create a meal using Waitrose Duchy Organic products which would be fit to serve to royalty. My dish was chicken ballotine with potato purée and mushroom and shallot sauce. My dish was one of the top 3 to be chosen in this nationwide competition, where the public could vote for their favourite dish to win. I received the most votes and won the competition. Waitrose organised for me to fly to Scotland and be transported to Dumfries house to attend the banquet with HRH Prince Charles to have my winning dish prepared and cooked for him and 60 other important guests. Before the banquet we had the honour of a private meeting which Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall (Camilla), where they could not believe a 14 year old boy had won this nationwide competition and were overjoyed for me. It was a memorable day and I will never forget it.
