Six trainee chefs from the Scottish Borders recently cooked for Albert Roux OBE, as part of a competition to win a placement with his former protégé, Andrew Fairlie.

Competing to win the Border Union Bicentenary Roux Apprentice Award, the young chefs were vying for a six-month placement at Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, as well as a £6,000 bursary arranged by the Border Union Agricultural Society (BUAS), with support from Quality Meat Scotland.

The competition, which is being run in association with Borders College, forms part of a year-long programme of bicentenary celebrations by the BUAS, which aim to highlight the region’s impressive food production credentials.

The six students who participated in the final included: Andy Thomson from Earlston; Paulo Neves from Melrose; Chris Mitchell from Hawick; Jessica Mead from St Boswells; Lynn Frizzell from Galashiels; and Ainsley Casson from Hawick.

The winner of the Border Union Roux Apprentice Award will be announced at the bicentenary dinner at SpringwoodPark in Kelso, as part of the annual Border Union Show, from 26th-27th July 2013. In addition to the Show’s traditional competitions, activities and displays, the bicentenary event will also include a Food Fair featuring top UK chefs.
