A Broadford Primary School Cook has received recognition.

Annette Burfoot won the Highland heat for the ASSIST FM – SCOTTISH SCHOOL COOK OF THE YEAR.

Annette competed with cooks from throughout Scotland at the Scottish Cook School in Kilmarnock and was invited to attend the ASSIST FM Conference at the Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on 23-24 August.

She was delighted to receive the second place prize and was presented with a trophy to commemorate her work.


Councillor Alan Henderson, Chair of the Council’s Environment, Development and Infrastructure Committee said: “Annette’s achievement is incredible and it is fantastic that she was able to represent the quality of Highland school meals. The fresh vegetables, herbs and fruit used in her dish were grown by pupils from Broadford Primary school which also demonstrates how the whole school has embraced the wider curriculum in their pupils’ education.”

Annette said: “It was a huge honour to represent Broadford Primary school and The Highland Council at this fantastic event which was very exciting. I am very proud to bring home this prize to Skye and the Highlands which represent the very heart of what our school meals are all about in The Highland Council.”
