Rookie cooks served up a treat at the final of MidKent College’s annual Battle of the Chefs competition.
Students on level 1 hospitality and catering courses squared off against one another in an attempt to impress the judges at the Medway Campus’ Pavilion Restaurant. Dishes served up at the final included pork and braised scallion terrine for starter, pan-roasted haddock for main, and crème brûlée for dessert.
Johannes Keevey, a lecturer, said: “Everyone who took part in this year’s event has done exceptionally well. Many of the students put in long hours to ensure everything went according to plan, and the teamwork and passion they displayed was a joy to witness.”
The Pavilion Restaurant is run almost entirely by students at the Medway Campus, under the watchful eyes of members of staff who have a wealth of experience in the hospitality and catering industries.
