Stu­dents serv­ing up for an­nual cook-off

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - FRONT PAGE -

Stu­dents have been cook­ing up a storm dur­ing the first round of the De­niliquin High School ‘cook-off’ com­pe­ti­tion.

All food tech­nol­ogy and hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents had the chance to par­tic­i­pate in the school’s an­nual culi­nary chal­lenge for their chance to claim first prize — $250 do­nated by SunRice.

Round one re­quires stu­dents from each class to cre­ate a fried rice dish to be taste tested by three judges.

Once the win­ning dishes are de­ter­mined, three stu­dents from each class will move on to the next round.

Much like round one, the sec­ond stage re­quires the bud­ding chefs to cook up a risotto dish.

The fi­nal two con­tes­tants in the com­pe­ti­tion move on to the grand fi­nal, where they will de­sign and cook a two course rice based meal.

De­niliquin High School Cre­ative and Per­form­ing Arts fac­ulty head teacher Ni­cole Jenk­ins said the com­pe­ti­tion was started six years ago to pro­mote the cook­ing skills the stu­dents are taught in class.

‘‘There were a lot of things for stu­dents to get in­volved in for mu­sic and aca­demic sub­jects so I thought it would be a good idea to cre­ate a com­pe­ti­tion for our foodie stu­dents,’’ Mrs Jenk­ins said.

Round one of the cook-off will be com­pleted by the end of the first week of Term 3.

The over­all win­ner will be de­ter­mined at the De­niliquin High School Va­ri­ety Night on Au­gust 8.
