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!
Eastleigh College is delighted to announce the appointment of Paul Cox as its next Chief Executive and Principal, following the retirement of Dr Jan Edrich in September 2020.
Learners, staff, governors and representatives from business and industry joined together to celebrate at Eastleigh College’s annual awards ceremony at Eastleigh Football Stadium. The annual event, which was organised by our Event Management students, recognised the talents of staff, students and employers for their exceptional work during the last academic year.
