New Zealand Chef and Hospitality Nationals

By TBHS | Posted: Thursday August 10, 2017

Our Food and Hospitality Department can be truly proud of the recent success of Jack Mullany and Hunter McBride at National level.

On 28 July these students competed in the New Zealand Chef and Hospitality Nationals in Auckland, specifically competing in the Mystery Box Beef and Lamb class against eight teams from schools throughout New Zealand. Jack and Hunter were given a list of ingredients to plan a dish over a one hour period prior to the competition, followed by 75min to cook and plate two identical dishes.

The judging criteria for bronze, silver and gold awards are based on the number of points gained. Jack and Hunter were awarded silver medals which means that they gained 80-90 points out of 100 for their dish. The winning team also gained a silver medal. Jack and Hunter were placed second.

This is an outstanding achievement. Congratulations boys.
