A team from South Lanarkshire College (SLC) has taken third place in the Brakes Student Chef Team Challenge live cook-off final at Hotelympia last month.

The students took the bronze position behind Farnborough College of Technology and winners Westminster Kingsway College, London.

Entrants to this year’s competition, sponsored by BD Foods and ABP Food Group and supported by the Craft Guild of Chefs, were challenged to create a three-course, four-cover menu inspired by a ‘Back to Basics’ theme in just 1 hour and 45 minutes.

As well as the top three, teams included several England-based institutions, and SLC were the only representatives from north of the Border.

The finalists progressed through an initial paper judging stage which featured over 85 team entries, followed by a series of seven live regional heats held throughout the UK.

Judge Mark Irish commented: ‘The standard of cooking throughout the competition has been exceptional, with Westminster Kingsway (pictured below) displaying the perfect combination of teamwork, technique and imagination to pip the other teams to the title.’
