UCOL Wairarapa cooks bring home silver

UCOL Wairarapa Cookery students had a silver glow after the 2014 Wellington Culinary Fare competitions recently.

The five students returned with three silver medals and a new appreciation of what a high level cooking competition is all about.

Certificate in Cookery students Nykyta Kuri and Jodi Haustein both claimed silver medals in the Meadow Mushroom Superb Soup (Trainee) class.

Jamie Rafferty gained a silver medal in the Coq au vin Hot Chicken Brunch Trainee class.

Devon Wilmshurst and Glen Schofer finished just out of the medals.

Chef Lecturer Damian Peeti says, “The students have learned a lot from the intensity of competition and the experience will add value to their own aspiring careers.”

“It's not easy to get up and perform in front of an audience,” he says. “I really admire them all.”

Eight UCOL Cookery and Hospitality students from Palmerston North gained five silver and one bronze medal in their respective classes, at the prestigious annual event.
