Aspiring chefs in Maidenhead showed off their cookery skills on Wednesday last week when they competed for this year's inter-school Junior Masterchef title.
Taking place at Cox Green School, in Highfield Lane, a total of 16 teams took part in the competition which was organised by employment charity Learning to Work.
Teams consisted of pupils from years seven to nine from seven different school from across the county.
The first stage of the competition saw each school hold internal heats to select teams of three for the year group categories.
Their aim was to cook a 'tasty and imaginative' three course meal within a budget of £15 and in a time limit of just one hour.
Their dishes were then marked by a selection of guest judges including representatives from Waitrose supermarket and Crème restaurant in Windsor.
Project executive at Learning to Work, Linda Moody, said: "It went fantastically well."
Paramedics were called to the scene of a medical emergency in Maidenhead on Monday morning (June 27).
A teenager who died after getting into difficulty in the Jubilee River has been described as a ‘gentle giant’ in a tribute from his school.
