It’s been a busy yet successful few weeks for our Catering students.
Congratulations to our Level 2 Professional Cookery student Brendon Hold, who came fifth out of 35 entries in a chef’s competition at Westminster Kingsway College. The winner was a student currently undertaking a Level 5 Degree in Culinary Arts, so it was great to hear that our Level 2 students are already living up to such high standards.
We also recently hosted our 4th Annual Inter-College Patisserie Competition. Professional Cookery students competed with students from Harlow College and New City College London to produce a sponge-based dessert, a chocolate-based dessert and a fruit-based dessert in just four hours. Local MP Charles Walker was in attendance for the awards ceremony with our Principal Tony Medhurst. Our judges were; Heather Kaniuk - Executive Patisserie Chef at Shanghai-La, The Shard and Ritchy Folds, Head Chef at McMullens The Kings Mead, Ware. They were both incredibly impressed with all three entries, so much so, that second and third place turned into joint runners up. Our Level 1 learners Katie Bitmead and Joshua Cena scooped up first prize with their amazing dishes.
Well done to all those involved, we hope you all keep up the great work.
