She plans to go forward to the next stage on October 14 in Bristol.
Cathryn McCollum, who is the second chef at the home, took part in the Maria Mallaband Care Group Chef of the Year competition and has been shortlisted after cooking a three-course meal fore regional judge, Ottery's mayor and members of Honiton Chamber of Commerce.
She is now preparing for the next round which will be judged by members of the Maria Malaband Care Group team and celebrity chef Paul Welburn.
