A FORMER Carnforth High School pupil who is now head chef at the Northcote restaurant in Langho, is once again cooking on the Great British Menu TV contest.

Lisa Allen, who studied catering at Lancaster and Morecambe College, will battle it out to represent the North West in the latest series of the BBC2 show.

Last year, Miss Allen was chosen to cook for Prince Charles at a royal banquet.

Viewers saw Lisa’s starter, wild rabbit and leek turnover with piccalilli, enjoyed by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall and 120 guests.

This year, her mentor and chef patron at Northcote, Nigel Haworth, will also be appearing on the series as a judge for the North East region.
