UAW Junior MasterChef Finals -
On Friday 24th March Year 8 students atended Warrington Collegiate College where they were invited to submit menu design entries for the local Masterchef junior finals. Two of our Year 8’s were selected to the finals to cook the menu they had designed. Each pair of students had a limit of £10 and had to consider portion sizes, costing and overall presentation to the dishes.
Students were encouraged to consider using techniques tried and tested in their Food Technology lessons. Jack Sanders and Emily Browning were selected for the finals, they spent a lot of time preparing and testing out their dishes after school with support from Mrs Collins.
Melissa Day, Design Technology Technician commented: “This was such a great opportunity for Jack and Emily. It was a challenging experience as they had to prepare and cook in an industrial kitchen within a time frame and also against the other local schools. They worked very well as a team and although didn’t win, the comments about their dishes were that they accomplished a very high standard.”
