Liverpool chefs taste success — again

A culinary team from City of Liverpool College dished up three years of success in a row as they put in a winning performance at a Masterchef-style hospitality competition.

The eight-strong team from the college’s Academy Restaurant was crowned Best Visiting Team at the Salon Culinaire competition at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College from January 28.

Daniel Liu enjoyed a personal success, being named the Best Visiting Student Chef.

He said: “I was so proud to have won Best Visiting Chef — but I couldn’t have done it without the team and the team manager’s support and guidance.”

Ian Jaundoo, executive chef and culinary team manager, said: “This is the first competition most of the team has entered and to pick up the award for Best Visiting Team, for the third year running, is a superb achievement.

“This is definitely a sign of things to come for all of these aspiring chefs.”
