Star chefs steal the show

Four Cheltenham students are through to the semi-finals of a TV national cookery competition.

The team from Star Bistro at National Star College last night (Wednesday) won their regional heat on the new ITV series Food Glorious Food.

The winner of the series will collect 20,000 and have their dish produced and sold by Marks & Spencer.

The show, aired on Wednesday nights, is hosted by Loyd Grossman and Carol Vorderman.

The Star Bistro teams Star Pimms summer jelly won the favour of the judges which include Anne Harrison, Tom Parker Bowles and Stacie Stewart.

Students Georgina Ivins, 18, Rachel Janes, 20, Tristan Blick, 19, and former student Joe Cook will now prepare for the semi-finals in April.

The students, along with bistro and college staff watched the show last night at a celebration dinner at the Hotel du Vin.

Judge Stacie Stewart said the jelly was absolute perfection. Its all a beautiful taste of summer and the orange sauce is the taste of the show.

Their Star Pimms summer jelly is on the menu at Star Bistro and they hope people will come and try it for themselves.

The recipe was created by the students and the bistro team and showcases local suppliers including: Three Choirs, Creed, Primrose Vale and Darcy Wines.

National Star College supports young people with disabilities. The Bistro, based at Ullenwood, is open to the public.
