Jersey win the Culinary Muratti 2014! Watch the videos!

Jersey Muratti Team

A team of top chefs from Jersey and Guernsey competed in the ultimate inter-island culinary challenge this week and Jersey were triumphant!

 

The two teams were tasked with creating a culinary feast from a mystery basket for 55 covers per team.  They had to impress a discerning group of diners, including a judging panel of top London chefs; Henri Brosi, executive chef at The Dorchester, Paul Gayler MBE, executive chef at The Lanesborough Hotel and Andrew Bennett MBE, food and beverages manager at The Sheraton in Park Lane.

 

Thanks to Freedom Media for producing the following videos.

 

 

 

The Jersey Team headed up by Guy Owen from Tiffin Jersey included some of the best professional chefs as well as one of our very own Level 2 students George Goddard.

Jersey claimed victory for the second year in a row. 

Congratulations to all involved.

Calling all creative people!

Construction Degree students visit London’s first ever Cruise Terminal

In July 2014, a group of Construction Degree students, as part of their residential visit to London South Bank University were able to explore the £280million Enderby Wharf Development located on the River Thames between Greenwich and the O2.  It comprises 616 luxury riverside apartments and Central London’s first ever cruise terminal.  The visit was extremely informative and thanks must be given to Barratt London, David Margason and Paul Ellison for giving the students the opportunity to view this cutting edge development as well as their hospitality on the day.  The photo shows the students and members of staff from London South Bank University and Highlands College all suitably attired in personal protective equipment!  It is hoped that this visit may be repeated again during the next residential in two years’ time to view the progress of this very exciting development.
