Later this term Charleston Academy will host the Inverness Rotary Masterchef Competition. This event will take place in our new Roux Kitchen and will see pupils from four school in Inverness compete to represent the area nationally.
Last week, Mike Mathieson, consultant chef to Chez Albert Roux OBE was in school to cast a critical eye over the work of two of our entrants.
Alex McKenzie (5L2) prepared Arbroath Smoked Salmon Ravioli with Pea Puree and Crispy Prawns as a starter, followed by Roast Borders Duck Breast, Fig, Crushed Potato and Broccoli.
Ronan Melens (5S1) served a starter of Pea and Almond Veloute, Ham and Ricotta Tortellini and a main of Pan Roasted Corn Fed Chicken Supreme, Tarragon Gnocchi and Caramalised Celeriac Puree.
Both boys are still finalising their dishes ahead of the first heat on Wednesday this week.
