Samiya Hamel 8S and Laura Cretu 7B were among the five students that participated in the school’s heat of the Young Chef Rotary competition In January. As the winner and the runner up respectively, both students represented KHS in the area heat. Although Laura stopped at the area heat she had this to say about her experience:
“The rotary cooking competition was a great experience for me. I met many wonderful and experienced people, who helped me with my cooking skills.I became more interested in food nutrition….” Laura Cretu 7B
Samiya’s performance in the area heat landed her a place in the district heat.There, her freshly made Alfredo pasta dish was described by one of the distinguished judges as “the best pasta dish” in the competition.
“The young chef competition had been a fantastic experience……..” Samiya Hamel 8S
Samiya’s passion and commitment to cooking have given her the opportunity to cook in large industrial kitchens as shown in the videos attached and I wish her the best in the future.
I would like to commend Laura and other students in our school who take on opportunities like cooking competitions to challenge themselves.
Special thanks to Lucy, Gary, Tamara, Gopi, Jenny, Pravina and members of the PEEL department for their support and hard work with the competitions.The students couldnt have done it without all the support from their parents and carers.
