The winning chef will compete in the national championships in Birmingham in July.
An angry father claims a bus driver threatened to kick his deaf son off - for being too noisy.
Kyle Johnson was on his way back from a hospital appointment with two-year-old Ethan when the toddler got excited and started talking loudly.
Mr Johnson says the driver called him over and said other passengers had complained and he had to quieten Ethan down or get off.
The supermarket cleaner, from Plymouth, said: "I explained to the driver that Ethan was deaf, but his response was 'I really can't do a lot, I've had complaints'."
Ethan wears two over-the-ear hearing aids and suffers moderate hearing loss in one ear and severe loss in the other.
He eventually fell asleep in his pushchair but his dad said: "It's just discrimination against a disabled child at the end of the day."
A spokesman for bus company First Bus Group apologised for the "difficult journey" and said all drivers get customer service and disability awareness training.
He added: "As you would expect, we cannot anticipate every situation and we don't have a specific instruction for drivers for the set of circumstances as described by Mr Johnson.
"Therefore, in such rare and unpredictable situations, it is left to driver discretion.
"With Mr Johnson's assistance we would be happy to investigate in detail the incident of 25 February and interpret whether or not our driver acted appropriately.
"We absolutely recognise how important it is that bus services are accessible for all customers, and are currently involved in a number of initiatives to explore specifically how our services can become more accessible for the deaf community."
