Cara Maguire, the chef at the Tavern in Mold, Flintshire, has reached the final of the North West Young Chef competition, sponsored by Essential Cuisine.

The competition, held across various regions in the North West, featured entrants from Flintshire for the first time in its 12 year history.

Cara Maguire,18, will join the five other finalists at Manchester College on Wednesday 18 June, where they will be charged with producing a three-course meal for two with an emphasis on local and seasonal produce.

Essential Cuisine managing director and a member of the judging team, Nigel Crane, said: “Congratulations to our six young finalists. In 12 years of completion we have seen an unprecedented rise in standards and I’m delighted to say that each of them has helped raise the bar yet again, showing such talent and coolness under pressure from ones so young. I greatly look forward to seeing them cook again in June where competition is sure to be fierce.”

As county heat winners, the young chefs will get to attend an exclusive master-class with Aiden Byrne, the youngest chef to be awarded a Michelin star, at the Manchester House Restaurant.
