Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua Col­lege year 13 stu­dents Wiki Mackey and Michala Rei won the Welling­ton re­gional di­vi­sion of the na­tional sec­ondary schools Culi­nary Chal­lenge on May 16.

The girls had 90 min­utes to pre­pare and present an en­tree and main course menu for four peo­ple. It had to in­clude cer­tain veg­eta­bles and pro­tein.

They fin­ished with sec­onds to spare and thrilled the judges with their en­tree of beet­root gelee with chevre, or­ange and wal­nut salad and spiced beet­root and or­ange.

The main course was stuffed chicken supreme and madeira jus with dauphi­noise pota­toes, but­tered car­rots and broc­col­ini.

Wiki and Michala will now com­pete against other re­gional win­ners at the end of Au­gust.

The girls spent many hours plan­ning, pre­par­ing and prac­tis­ing their com­pe­ti­tion menu.

They said they re­ceived muchap­pre­ci­ated ex­pert ad­vice from chef Sonya Martin.
