Four Level 3 Catering students recently took part in an inter-College cookery tournament at the Universal Cookery Food Festival at Laverstoke Park Farm, to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The students competed by cooking various barbeque dishes, including BBQ pizza, lamb sliders and oriental marinated pork, and were the winning team!
Student Harry Flint said, “I enjoyed using a proper pizza oven, it’s much more interesting. And really hot!”
Speaking about his favourite part of the event, student Andrew Hawkins said, “The best bit was actually serving the dishes to people. I also learnt a whole new dish, which involved pounding a pork loin and moulding together with prawns using protein powder salt.”
There was also the opportunity for the students to learn from the experts by chatting to professional chefs, who gave them handy hints and tips for getting a job in the Catering industry.
Teenage Cancer Trust raised an amazing £2,850 at the event, and have extended special thanks to the Colleges who took part!
In a bid to support the Solent and South Hampshire’s economic recovery in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, a leading college in Hampshire has launched an ambitious and collaborative pledge which aims to benefit individuals, employers and communities across the region. The pledge has been developed with support from a numbers of stakeholders including business groups, employers, councils, schools and the University of Portsmouth.
The College is delighted to offer you the chance to spread your fees into monthly instalments over the length of your chosen course if you are unable to pay for the full amount of your course in advance of its start date.
