On the last Friday of Term 2, Year 12 students Katelyn Twiss and Claire Lonie entered the Australian Culinary Federation Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge for the ACT. There were four other teams from other schools also competing.
They had to use chicken as their protein and include other culinary skills and techniques, and they had one hour to produce two dishes of exactly the same quality. Their dish was Tea-Smoked Chicken Breast with Brussel Sprout Dumplings and Soy Caramel Sauce.
In these competitions, every dish is judged individually and can earn a Gold, Silver or Bronze Medal. The girls performed very well and received a Gold Medal (the only one awarded this year), which means they are now off to Brisbane on 4-6 August to compete in a National Competition with teams from NSW, Tasmania, Queensland and South Australia. Congratulations!
