Student teams secure places in Country Range competition final

Eight student chef teams have secured their places in the Country Range Student Chef Challenge final, which will take place at ScotHot.
Written by Andrew McClean
Teams from Ayrshire College, Blackpool and Fylde College, City College Norwich, City of Liverpool College, Glasgow Clyde College, Henley College, Hopwood Hall College and Loughborough College will compete for the title on March 15th.
As well as competing for the title, the victorious team will also win the opportunity to work with the Craft Guild of Chef’s culinary team in catering for over a thousand guests at the Craft Guild of Chefs Annual Awards 2017.
Craft Guild of Chefs’ head judge Chris Basten, said: “It’s all about taste and flavours but we are also looking for skills, technique, team work and character from the teams, as a three course menu is not easy to produce in just one and a half hours.
“The semi-finals have provided some amazing dishes so it’s a credit to all the teams and their college’s catering departments. There is not a lot to choose between the finalists so it’s set to be a fantastic cook-off.”
The annual Country Range Student Chef Challenge, which is run in partnership with the Craft Guild of Chefs, is now in its 23rd year.
