More medals for WelTec

Wellington Institute of Technology (WelTec) students and staff have again had a major medal haul at the New Zealand Culinary Fare.

The annual competition is hosted by the Restaurant Association of New Zealand and is held in Auckland. Over 1,000 competitors take part in the competition that attracts entries from restaurants and training providers all over the country.

Head of WelTec’s Centre for Hospitality Kay Nelson says that the Culinary Fare is a major event in WelTec’s teaching year.

“We encourage all our students and staff to compete in competitions but this one is especially significant because of its size and status,” says Kay. “Many people’s careers are launched at the Culinary Fare.”

Nine WelTec students and two staff competed in over 15 separate events during the three days of competition. All returned with medals.

The supreme event is the Toque d’Or, which is between invited teams of three students and covers both cookery and restaurant service skills. WelTec students Stephanie Rose and Joe O’Connell won a silver medal in the kitchen with Katrina Cousins and Damian Elvy taking a gold for restaurant service.

Tutor Pauline Nunns took away the Pastry Chef of the Year title for the second year running.
