House Competition Heats Up With Sixth Form Ready Steady Cook
Princethorpe’s Sixth Form students put their culinary skills under the spotlight when they took on the annual House Ready Steady Cook challenge.
Always a popular event, held at the start of the academic year, this year's competition took place at lunchtime on Thursday 14 September. Teams of four Sixth Formers donned their aprons and lined up to prepare a student staple in the Food Technology suite.
The teams were presented with a set of ingredients and challenged to produce a risotto in just 20 minutes. What’s more they had to cook, clean and tidy their workstation before presenting their dish. There were knives chopping, spoons stirring and pans sizzling as the House teams went to work. Onlookers encouraged from the side as the judges, led by Headmaster Mr du Toit, 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. This year first place went to Austin, closely followed by More and then Benet 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.
