Harry's super sandwich bowls judges over

A Goodwick student’s upper crust sandwich is now for sale to passengers sailing between Fishguard and Rosslare on the Stena Europe.
Harry Bean, from Ysgol Wdig, stepped up to the plate during a cookery competition in last year’s Fishguard autumn food festival. The 12- year-old knew which side his bread was buttered when he created a scrumptious beef and hummus sandwich.
Last week Harry stepped on board the Stena Europe to see his prize-winning creation for sale on the ferry, just in time for the busy summer season.
Harry’s winning entry in the Ready Stena Cook competition for primary school students really cuts the mustard, featuring three slices of wholemeal bread, two slices of beef, hummus and a mouth watering selection of salad ingredients.
The students’ dishes were marked on four criteria: healthy eating; business element; preparation and cooking time and creativity/ taste/presentation.
The judging panel was bowled over by Harry’s creation.
“The judges were extremely impressed by Harry’s winning dish,” said Steve Davies, Stena Europe’s route executive chef.
“He not only met all of the criteria but he cooked and presented it superbly, and it tasted great.
“It was a highly contested win as all the judges agreed that the standard of entries was very high, but we are confident with the winning selection and look forward to seeing it enjoyed by the our passengers.”
Ready Stena Cook is programmed in as part of this year’s Fishguard autumn festival. The competition is aimed at stimulating a greater interest in cooking, promoting healthy eating and introducing a business concept into the classroom.
