Romy salutes bake-off winners
CELEBRITY chef and cookery teacher Romy Gill helped judge a bake-off competition for young people.
Students from 22 schools took part in the contest, in which participants were asked to design and bake a cake that represented the Cabot Learning Federation's values.
The winning cake was created by students from John Cabot Academy in Kingswood and featured rainbow colours to represent LGBTQ+. The runners-up were from Bristol Futures Academy in Barton Hill.
Romy Gill, who was owner and head chef at Romy”s Kitchen in Thornbury, was joined for the judging at Bristol Brunel Academy in Speedwell by the federation’s chief executive Steve Taylor. All the cakes were later sold and raised more than £50 for the CLF’s big trip.
Executive principal Kate Richardson, who organised the event, said: “The judges were most impressed by the way the students made decisions about what to bake by incorporating our values of high expectations, equity, all children achieving, resilience and tolerance.”
