The overall winneryoung enterprise was SPARKS from Guildford High School with their Tastes of Surrey recipe book.  The recipes were supplied by local restaurateurs and chefs and celebrate local Surrey produce.  The judges were particularly impressed by their sophisticated marketing which embraced organisations like Wisley Gardens and the Surrey Hills Board amongst others.

Each year there is a huge learning curve for those involved.
