JADE Fuller’s cooking may have gone from ‘inedible to incredible’ but she has just missed the top spot in Kenwood Chef 2012 competition.

JADE Fuller’s cooking may have gone from ‘inedible to incredible’ but she has just missed the top spot in Kenwood Chef 2012 competition.

The Solihull-born take-away addict was a finalist in the inaugural ‘from Disaster Chef to Kenwood Chef’ competition, but lost out to Reading’s Kirsty Pulsakowska.

Newly-engaged Jade, aged 22, said: “I’m over the moon that I was able to take part.

“Even though I didn’t get the title in the end I still feel like a winner as I’ve not only learnt loads of new cooking skills and recipes but I’ve got a confidence in the kitchen that I’ve never had before.”

The competition saw Kenwood look for the country’s most hopeless cooks, with the aim of transforming their culinary skills over 12 weeks, with the contestants keeping a weekly blog.

The contest culminated in the nervous finalists whipping up a three course meal from a previously unseen menu at the Kenwood Academy HQ in Hampshire.
