Catering students plate up the competition

Four Catering and Hospitality students have gained valuable experience by helping local secondary school pupils at the Rotary Young Chef Competition.

There are four stages to the competition, each designed to support and encourage the development of cookery skills. The task was to prepare and cook a healthy two-course meal for two people, costing less than £10, in two hours. College students assisted pupils with how to use the College’s state-of-the-art catering facilities.

Kyle Hall, a Level 3 Professional Cookery student, said: “The secondary school pupils appeared to enjoy their experience at Barnsley College. I hope this competition has helped them appreciate the world of possibilities in catering.”

Lesley Wilson, Barnsley College Catering Services Manager, added: “The standard of entries was very high and the winner was Alex from Netherwood Academy, who will now compete in the next round at Betty’s Tea Room in Harrogate.

“The Rotary Club members all thought the College’s facilities were amazing as did the catering teachers from the schools who were supporting their pupils.”
