Catering students bring home Gold

Channel Island Chef of the Year Competition

Highlands College brings home two Gold Medals

Daniel Aires, one of our Full-Time Catering students has won the coveted title of Channel Islands Junior Chef of the Year.  This is a particularly fantastic achievement as most competitors in his category were full time chefs in the industry (under 24 years old).

Another of our Full-Time Catering students Kimberley Gallichan won the Gold Medal in the Pastry Competition.

Winners were announced at the Taste Guernsey Gala Dinner on Monday 7th April.

Special thanks go to our two Chef Lecturers Dom Farrell and Adrian Goldsborough for preparing the students and to Cimandis and the Craft Guild of Chefs for sponsoring the students’ travel and accommodation.

Congratulations to all involved.

Other games, such as Pin the Tail to the Bunny, Easter Hat competition, ‘What’s the time, Mr Bunny?’ and an Easter Hunt, are also included in the fee and will provide additional chances to win lots of prizes.
