School Chef of the Year 2018.

With just one week left until the regional final of a school chef competition, a 45-year-old dinner lady says she is “proud” to have made it so far.

Michelle Creed, 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 next Thursday, 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.”
