This year’s Taste of the Future Schools Cooking Competition saw some amazing cooking vying for the winner position. The event was held on Thursday 23rd June 2022 where nine high school students battled it out in the kitchen in a Master Chef style cook-off for a chance to win the HGT Taste of the Future Schools Cooking Competition. With our three judges Don Hancey – WA Food Ambassador, Stephen Clarke – owner Clarke’s of North Beach, Paul Beard – Executive Chef of Perth Arena walking the floor, the students handled the pressure like true pros (no reality TV drama in sight!).
The Competition is open to all Year 11 and Year 12 students throughout Western Australia where each school can enter only one student to represent their school. Now in its 9th year, the competition has seen some extremely talented individuals competing for the title. This year Ropa Nyandoro from Applecross Senior High School took the crown with her Cornfed Chicken Breast on Tahini Labne with Kale, Smoked Almond and Green Olives.
