Heat on as bud­ding chefs vie for ti­tle

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

The cater­ing stakes were raised at the lat­est Kar­ratha and Dis­tricts Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try net­work­ing event when a team of bud­ding young chefs took on the chal­lenge of com­pet­ing to be crowned Pil­bara’s own MasterChef.

About 30 Year 11 and 12 Kar­ratha Se­nior High School stu­dents study­ing for a Cer­tifi­cate II in hos­pi­tal­ity cooked for busi­ness­peo­ple at the May Busi­ness Af­ter Hours event, for which the school li­brary was trans­formed into a restau­rant.

An ap­pre­cia­tive crowd voted for their favourite dishes and, while the large spread of canapes and desserts didn’t make it an easy choice, they even­tu­ally awarded Year 12’s Re­bekah Adam­son and Year 11 trio JadaLily Corby, Mackenzie Cooke and Alyssa Dyson the cov­eted Golden Spoon first prize.

Kar­ratha Se­nior High School prin­ci­pal Jen­nifer McMa­hon said the school had wanted to run a BAH MasterChef for some time as a way to give hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents real-world ex­pe­ri­ence and thank the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity for its sup­port. She said the project rep­re­sented three weeks of work for stu­dents, guided by lo­cal chef Nickie Ralph.
