Challenge cooks up a storm

The College Hall was buzzing on Friday January 13 with all Year 7 students taking part in a fantastic Fun into Food event, provided by Chartwells.

The event began with an insight into the importance of a healthy balanced diet, and the different food categories that should be incorporated.

Darren, event host, soon had the students freely interacting with a Q&A style discussion.

The excitement intensified when Darren introduced the competing teams for the race against the clock cooking challenge.

On the Red Team, Miss Hall was supported by Max Widdowson and Courtney Ann-Baker; on the Green Team Mr Burdett was supported by Dominic Lowe and Alex Snowden.

Both teams were given a selection of ingredients; the red team including meat, the green team ingredients suitable for vegetarians.

The atmosphere was fantastic. The teams were amazing and both managed to complete a great tasting, healthy dish using all of the ingredients provided and in the allocated time, but which team would be voted the overall winner based on cooking technique, presentation and overall finished dish.

And the winner was... the Red Team.

A fantastic time was had by all students and staff. Chartwell’s certainly put the ‘Fun into Food’ with this event and we look forward to future events being held at the college.
