  • Future Chefs Foxes Final

    Published 24/01/24

    The internal Future Chefs final - in collaboration with Springboard and Sodexo - took place at Aurora Foxes on the 16th January, and the food was absolutely phenomenal!

    Last term students participated in the initial stages of the competition by presenting their menus to their peers, and after a vote, the winning pairs got to enter into the final stage of the competition, where they would be making two courses (a starter and a main, or a main and dessert) that would later be judged by Gary Hind and Michael Taylor (Sodexo) and Cameron Corrick (Commis Chef at The Pig and Foxes graduate).

    A huge congratulations to our winners Lexie and JC, and Maija and Alex! The pairs will be competing against Aurora Boveridge College and Aurora Hedgeway School in February at Weston College to determine the overall Future Chef champions!

    A huge well done to all students for taking part, and a big thank you to our Sodexo judges.
