The Auckland Regional Culinary Fare competitions hit our Auckland CBD at AUT over the weekend of 29th & 30th June 2013 where twenty nine of our Cornell Student’s competed. This event is a great learning process for our students, where it creates a kind of realism and helps provide a platform of preparation in readiness for the Nationals in August of this year. As expected, our students performed exceptionally well and did not disappoint.

Our Cookery student ‘s collecting a total of six silver medal winners, in the Fruit Flan and Pasta Dish sections, fourteen bronze medals for; Fruit Flan, Chocolate Dessert, Live Dessert, Beef, Salmon and Nicoise Salad sections. Also collected two merits, along with three participations Additionally our reasonably one year new Hospitality course student’s collecting two bronze medals for Innovative Table Setting and two bronze medals for Table Setting, Clearing & Crumbing Down. This competition required the obligation of each and everyone involved, through hard work & dedication from the participants, with both students and trainers committing many weeks of time prior to the competition to practice and preparation. Ensuring students are prepared, organized & operational for the high standard required in this & other events as well as the industry of which is a most important factor of iCareer approach.
