The winners of the inaugural Aagrah Doncaster Junior Chef competition have been revealed at a glittering awards ceremony at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Youngsters from across the borough battled in out last week at the Aagrah Restaurant in Woodlands, to make a curry in under an hour using their own unique recipes for a panel of judges.

This followed demonstrations from Aagrah’s Asif Ali, and school cook offs, through which two pupils, aged between seven and 11, from each of the participating eight primary schools were selected to battle it out to be crowned winner of the Junior Chef competition.

And tonight, the winners were honoured at a glitzy awards ceremony, in aid of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

The top three winning teams were:

1, Braiden Dale and Kia Dagnall from Woodlands Primary

2, Lily Butler and Esenyia Tumareviva from Town Field Primary
