Faith Belshaw Performs at the NI Final of the FutureChef Competition at Titanic in Belfast 
Developed by Springboard and supported by Henderson Foodservice, the NI FutureChef final took place at Belfast Met’s Titanic Quarter campus today. 
The FutureChef school’s competition saw five ambitious cooks face off against each other in the kitchen, judged by celebrity chef Jean-Christophe Novelli. 
Joining Jean-Christophe and bringing their knowledge of homegrown produce and NI tastes to the judging panel, were owner of the Deane’s restaurant empire, chef Michael Deane and food development chef at Henderson Foodservice, Geoff Baird. 
This years competition saw nearly 800 young cooks battle it out at the pass, creating dishes hoping to make the NI final of the competition and securing what the future pipeline of talent looks like for the NI hospitality industry. 
Each finalist stepped into their future chef roles today, wearing full Chef Whites provided by Henderson Foodservice, to really look and feel the part. 
Faith has worked tirelessly over recent weeks with her mentor Colleen Lennon (The Oliver in Newry) in preparation for the event. 
Faith cooked a main course of pan fried mackerel with beetroot risotto and goats cheese with crispy kale, stem broccoli and asparagus. Followed by chocolate fondant with caramel sauce, fresh cream and walnuts. 
Faith performed extremely well under pressure and we are very proud of her.
