Last week, two Roseland students, Josh and Garnet, competed in the final of the St Austell Brewery Schools Cornish Chef Championship, with Garnet winning the event overall!
Students were asked to enter the competition by writing about their favourite dish and in October, 10 students from each of the competing schools were selected to take part in the competition, preparing their main course dish for two using a set list of ingredients supplied by local suppliers. The dishes were judged by the Head Chef Mentor and the class teacher, with eight students from each school going forward to the next round of the competition.
In November, after a further round of mentoring, the students were asked to prepare a dessert of their choosing during a special 1-hour timed session, again using a set list of ingredients sponsored by local suppliers, with a place in the Grand Final at stake.
For the Grand Final challenge, students were asked to create a 3-course dinner for St Austell Berwery Head of Food, Kirstie Worrall and Cornwall College’s Grant Mather.
We are extremely proud of both Garnet and Josh for the skill and dedication they have both shown throughout the competition.
