School Chef of the Year 2018.

A dinner lady says she is “proud” to have made it to the regional final of a cooking competition.

Michelle Creed, 45, of Rush Green, who works at Broadford Primary School, Harold Hill, has been a dinner lady for the past 11 years.

So when she found out that Havering Council once again nominated her for the School Chef of the Year 2018 competition, she was delighted.

Michelle has made it to the regional finals that will take place on January 11, where she will prepare her two chosen dishes, mac and cheese bolagnese bake and a lime and coconut cheesecake, for the judges to taste.

She said: “I chose these dishes, because the children love mac and cheese and really enjoy my creation which has a healthy twist, and the cheesecake is a light, fresh dessert.

“I’m so proud and I hope I can create the dishes to the best of my ability on the day.”
