Budding chefs at City College Southampton returned triumphant from a recent cookery competition having picked up 31 awards.

The students, who are all studying catering and hospitality, walked away from the Wessex Salon Culinaire competition with a total of 16 gold medals, six silver, five bronze and four certificates of merit.
