Royal Navy chefs visit to run a Culinary Competition for GCSE Year 10 Pupils

Posted: 22nd April 2024

Members of the Royal Navy Recruitment Logistics have paid a visit to Queen’s College to talk about careers in the Navy as well as provide a masterclass in cooking to the GCSE Year 10 aspiring chefs. It was an opportunity for the students to work in teams and learn more about careers in the Armed Forces from catering service professionals from the Royal Navy.

Pupils were tasked with preparing, cooking and presenting two complex dishes in two hours, Chicken Kievs with Fondant Potatoes for the main and Fresh Fruit Filled Meringue Pavlovas for dessert. Once their time limit was up, our young cooks presented their food to the Navy chefs. The dishes were judged, on their taste, texture and appearance and on the pupils technical ability to demonstrate a variety of different high culinary skills to a high level.

“They all worked extremely well, and embraced the challenge, producing some wonderful dishes”. Said Mr Mann Head of Faculty of Art, Design, and Food. “They all thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were able to pick up lots of new skills and tips from the Navy Chefs”.

Following the success and positive feedback from the event, plans are already underway to host another session next year.
