Young Chef Competition Sept 5th 2017

The quest to find this year’s Young Chef of the Year commenced at Ardnamurchan High School on Monday, September 25th.  The standard of cooking was excellent, especially considering that there were five fifth year pupils and two third-year pupils participating.  The judges were Rotarian Donald Young and Rosie Curtis from Marine Harvest who, on completion of the salmon dishes, immediately checked that they had been cooked correctly. All were.The winner was Katie MacGillivray with the main dish of fillet of salmon in an Asian marinate with noodles and a vegetable stack and with a dessert of lemon meringue soufflé with fresh cream. Runner-up was Angus Dunn with a starter of Bruschetta on ciabatta and with a main of Carbonara with freshly made tagliatelle and wild chanterelle mushrooms.  The other five competitors were Calum McIntyre, Rona McIntyre, Alex MacKinnon, Archie Green and Kirsty MacDonald.

Thanks to all the competitors, judges Donald and Rosie and to Ardnamurchan High School for their enthusiasm.

A report from David Robertson on Ron’s Cycle – Aug 19th 2017

Despite atrocious weather, the party of nine Rotarians, Partners and friends set off from a mile south of Duror at 1030 am to cycle to the Creagan Inn. We arrived in good time to enjoy an excellent lunch there.For our return journey, the wind had turned from south-west to north-west with the conditions improving dramatically. Thanks to Ron’s local knowledge, we took a diversion over the Jubilee Bridge at Appin. This proved to be a popular decision with the team. Unfortunately, David Mee sustained a puncture, which was rapidly repaired with a new inner tube provided by Ron and ably fixed by David.  We arrived back at the car park in Duror, loaded the bikes and headed off to Ann & David Thompson’s home for coffee, tea & biscuits. Big thanks to David & Ann.

The total distance covered was about eighteen miles. Thanks to all who took part and a big thanks to Ron for the organisation. A very enjoyable trip.
Our next Bike Ride will be on 2nd September to Fort Augustus with various starting points – details will follow. A possible future trip to Lismore is also in the planning stage.
