Apprentice chefs cooking for gold
OUR best up-and-coming culinary talents were cooking up a storm at the Coffs Harbour Education Campus yesterday for the HTN Apprentice Chefs Cook Up.
And it appears there was a great incentive to get the creative juices flowing in the kitchen, with the overall winner of the challenge having the chance to win a new car in August.
There have been eight regional heats throughout the State during the past two months, co-ordinated by HTN, with 200 young apprentice chefs competing for prizes.
The gold winners from yesterday's heat in Coffs Harbour will flex their culinary muscles in the grand final event next month where medallists will be awarded cash prizes.
The gold winners will also be randomly asked to select a key, with one unlocking the door of a Hyundai Getz.
HTN is a leading group training organisation established by industry, for industry to provide hospitality apprentices and trainees. It employs more than 7000 apprentice chefs and hospitality trainees throughout the ACT, NSW and Qld, and is the largest hospitality-specific group employer in Australia.
