At the competition’s final in January, held in London at the Waitrose Cookery School, the young chefs aged between 12 and 16 were put through their paces in front of judges including celebrity chef Lesley Waters and The Pig Group’s James Golding.

Ruby impressed with her signature dish, a poached haddock timbale topped with a quail’s egg.

The dish has done Ruby proud, as in 2017 it won Best Starter at the Oaklands College Young Chef of the Year award.
