STUDENT chefs from Highlands College have been competing in an inter-college culinary competition this week, with the results to be announced at a gala dinner this evening.

The eight Jersey students have been competing against chefs from Westminster Kingsway College in London and Bradford College in Yorkshire in a new event called Heat, organised by the Jersey Craft Guild of Chefs.

Each team was led by some top chefs, the Jersey team having Michelin Star chef Mark Jordan and chef lecturer Dominic Farrell to guide them in their efforts to win the Peter Quérée Trophy.

Over the past two days, each college has cooked a three-course lunch or dinner which has been judged by four chefs in the UK catering industry at Highlands Academy Restaurant. Front-of-house students from each college were judged on their level of service.

A celebration dinner hosted by James Tanner – resident chef on ITV’s The Lorraine Show – is being held this evening at the Hotel de France, where highlights of the competition will be showcased and the winner will be announced. Guests will enjoy a three-course dinner consisting of the best course from each college competition menu.
