House Competition Heats Up As The Sixth Form Ready Steady Cook
Princethorpe’s Sixth Form students put their culinary skills under the spotlight in the College’s latest inter-house competition, Ready Steady Cook.
Ready Steady Cook is always a popular inter-house competition and this year's event took place on Monday 26 September. Teams of Sixth Formers enthusiastically took part in what proved to be a hotly contested challenge, preparing a student staple, an omelette, in the Food Technology suite.
The students were presented with a set of ingredients and challenged to produce their omelette in just 12 minutes. What’s more they had to cook, clean and tidy their workstation before presenting their dish.
There were knives chopping, whisks stirring and pans sizzling as the House teams went to work. Onlookers encouraged from the side as the judges, Jacqui Scott, Lee Cassell and Georgia Newborough surveyed the proceedings.
The finished plates of food were lined up along the table and, under the watchful eyes of the competitors and their supporters, the judges carefully taste-tested the dishes.
The results were close with just a few points separating all the Houses. This year first place went to Benet, closely followed by More and then Austin and Fisher.
Huge thanks to all of the competitors for their enthusiastic efforts, to our judges who braved the tasting and to the House teams for organising and supporting the event.
