The competition, which took place from 23rd – 25th January, offered participants the chance to compete and show off their expertise in front of a live audience of judges and culinary professionals, and choose from over 80 cookery classes.
Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Professional Cookery student, Sherwin Mauro, walked away with a Silver medal and was awarded ‘Best in Class’ for her cheese starter. This part of the competition saw Sherwin create two starters in 30 minutes which consisted of at least 50% cheese which was part of the competition requirements.
Max Wilson, also studying a Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Professional Cookery, was awarded a Merit in the Power Bowl Challenge alongside RuTC catering teacher James Unwin who gained a Silver. The Power Bowl Challenge saw competitors race against time to create six bowls of superfood.
Commenting on the competition James said “The International Salon Culinaire competition was a highly successful and rewarding experience for everyone. Both students and staff represented the college and demonstrated the continued high standards, skill and commitment we have at RuTC.”
