EIT entered a team of one Front of House student Jamie O’Malley, and two chef students Hilary Wroe and Emma Druitt, and as you can see our team did us proud.
We also had various sponsors’ products to work with, and had to be innovative in the use of these products eg Akaroa Salmon, NZ Beef and Lamb, NZ Vegetables and Nestle products.
Korey Field our new chef tutor who was training the chefs was very innovative with the Nestle products in the desert component, and as a result of that we won the Innovation Award – the prize being a $6,500 oven filled with a selection of beautiful new recipe books.
A very big thanks goes to Celia Kurta for the Front of House training and Korey Field for the chef training.
Hours of work goes into the preparation of the team for these competitions.
As a result of this success both chef students have secured jobs at Vidal Estate Winery and Restaurant.
