Success for Emma Lawson in Craft Guild of Chefs Pastry Graduate Competition
Junior Cookery School Tutor Emma was one of just six young chefs to join the Graduate Awards hall of fame.
Fourteen entrants reached the final, following intense regional heats which lasted five hours. The pastry exam was the final challenge before the graduates were revealed in the ceremony at The Jumeirah Carlton Tower, Knightsbridge, London on 30th August which Emma attended with partner Ryan (above).
