Chefs see Palace

A group of young chefs have been given a glimpse of life in the kitchens of Buckingham Palace and Clarence House.

The cooks toured the facilities at the two royal residences in London seeing food prepared by staff.

The 14 young people were all winners in the Ludlow Skillbuilders Young Chefs contest held last year at the Ludlow Marches food and drink festival in Shropshire.

The visit gave them the chance to understand how teams of cooks work in busy urban kitchens.

Buckingham Palace's huge basement kitchens were relatively quiet as the Queen is still at her Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.

But staff were on hand to cook the young chefs a lunch of roast pork followed by sticky chocolate pudding.

Graeme Perks, founder of the Skillbuilders organisation which puts local traders from the Ludlow Marches area in touch with 14 to 25-year-olds to ensure the next generation develop much needed skills, also took part in the visit

He said: "This is very much a celebration of the young people in the Marches, how young chefs with their restaurateurs have developed skills.

"And today the fact that we have been able to come and see how it's done in the royal households, and how the team work here, has just reinforced to our youngsters it's a family and we all work together.

"It's a fantastic example of a team working together."
