Students tart it up and are then judged on looks alone

SOMETIMES in this job, the going gets really tough - like having to walk into a kitchen at lunchtime, filled with the aromas of custard tarts baking and being confronted with plates of superbly decorated fruit tarts, all to be judged ... on looks alone!

As they say in France - merde!

The occasion was a “Cordon Bleu Cook-Off” at John Paul College where Year 8 French students were exploring the culinary aspects of Gaulic culture under the guidance of Piccolo Restaurant chef, Mal Bendry.

Part of the North Coast Youth Career Connections “Adopt-a-School” program, the morning in the kitchen was aimed at opening students' eyes up to possibilities of life after school.

“Under the program we invite people who are doing inspiring things into schools to talk about their lives,” Ms Berrisford said.

“It shows kids options they may never have thought of and also how what they are doing at school is relevant.”
