CATERING STUDENTS TAKE PART IN A COOKING COMPETITION TO RAISE MONEY FOR GREAT ORMOND STREET HOSPITAL

Published on May 11, 2020

Whilst working from home, our Catering & Hospitality students took part in Stephen Scuffell’s ‘Beat the chefs, lockdown store cupboard recipe competition’ to create a main course based around pasta, rice or beans. The challenge encouraged students to donate to enter, with donations going towards Great Ormond Street’s official charity.

Chefs were required to create a ‘store cupboard’ dish to feed the family, with the best dish winning a prize.

  • Level 3 Professional Cookery student, Nyarli Calderon, cooked spicy pork belly with pepper-infused rice.
  • Level 3 Professional Cookery student, Emma Carter, made an interpretation of French onion soup with spaghetti noodles, served with fresh homemade bread.
  • Level 3 Professional Cookery student, Luke Watkins, cooked tagliatelle with a red wine and tomato sauce served with garlic bread.
  • Level 2 Professional Cookery student, Victoria Cooper, made ‘everything but the kitchen sink risotto.’
  • Level 2 Professional Cookery student, Latif Gyandoh, prepared a South African dish called Chakalaka, served with rice and seasoned chicken.
  • Level 2 Professional Cookery student, Josh Davies, made a hearty beef goulash with rice and sour cream.

Students managed to raise £100 for Great Ormond Street’s official charity. Stay tuned to find out the winning dish.
