Major Mini Series Culinary Challenge 2010 at Westminster Kingsway College’s Salon
17 May 2010
Westminster Kingsway hosted the Major Mini Culinary Challenge at its Victoria Centre last Friday where some of the nation’s brightest young chefs came to show off their skills.
The competition, organised with the Craft Guild of Chefs and Major International, is open to junior and senior chefs of varying skill levels and takes place throughout the year at venues across the United Kingdom.
Entrants for the competitions included chefs and students from Westminster Kingsway, Grimsby Institute of Further & Higher Education, BDL Select Hotels, House of Commons and East Durham College. Westminster Kingsway students won medals in many classes including Non-Alcoholic Cocktail and Coffee, Open Main Course Dish for Two and the Live Open Dessert for Two.
Maya Krauze–Ewing (pictured), Westminster Kingsway 3rd year Professional Chef Diploma student, won Gold in the Fish Class and as a result, will be competing in the national final in Birmingham in February 2011.
Maya Krauze–Ewing, said: “Studying at Westminster Kingsway gives you all the skills you need to start your career. I learnt how to fuse foods together from different backgrounds and that was reflected in my entry of Tuna Nicoise with Polish smoked sausage and Lemon sole with scallops and sour cucumber.”
Daniel Smith, Westminster Kingsway 2nd year Professional Chef Diploma student, won Gold Best in Class in the Open Main Course Dish for Two.
Daniel Smith, said: “I have been cooking since I was 15 so studying at WKC was the natural choice. The College opens so many doors for you. It’s well worth the effort.”
