At the Grand Final, held at the culinary institute’s Centre of Excellence in central London, Jamieson was declared the winner of the £30k scholarship and she will now spend time gaining work experience at The Ritz.
“I am thrilled that Shona has been awarded this year’s UK Scholarship Award,” said chef Loic Malfait, academic director at Le Cordon Bleu London. “She impressed us greatly with her passionate application video, and demonstrated her dedication to the culinary arts and desire to study with Le Cordon Bleu throughout the semi-final and Grand Final.
“We look forward to welcoming Shona to the London institute soon to begin her studies.”
The evening saw over 100 guests, comprising leading chefs and senior hospitality figures, gather at the London institute for the announcement of this year’s recipient.
