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!
The Eastleigh College Board and Senior Management Team have launched an ambitious strategy for the period 2020-24 that sets out the College’s priorities to see more learners, be more successful, more often.
The College has remained open throughout the Covid-19 pandemic for many learners and as from September 2020 all learners (including those planning to attend at College House) have returned to a full high-quality education programme as per government guidelines.
