Disabled chefs make it into Food Glorious Food final
A quartet of young disabled chefs have made it into the final of the ITV reality show competition Food Glorious Food, after their special Pimm's Jelly recipe impressed the judges.
The four cooks, who are all aged between 19 and 21 and living with a range of disabilities, will now compete against an as yet unknown rival finalist for the overall series title, with the winner having their recipe sold in Marks & Spencer stores across the UK.
Proving that being dependant on aids like wheelchair vehicles for transport should be no obstacle to achieving great things, Rachel Janes, Georgina Ivins, Joe Cook and Tristan Blick have come a long way since all starting courses at the bistro of the specialist National Star College in Cheltenham.
The head of learning support at the college has described the journey the budding gastronomes have gone through as 'absolutely magical', and many are now hoping that they can go one step better and emerge as the winners.
