Two apprentices Rosie Koffer and Gabbi Wilson who both worked at Chartists 1770 at The Trewythen in Llanidloes were part of a team who prepared a selection of “mouthwatering savory and sweet canapes” for VIP guests from business, culture and entertainment.

Last month the pair were crowned the first winners of the Culinary Association of Wales’ Green Chef Challenge after only working as chefs for a few months.
