Sam Jones, Theophil Dalton-Maag and Nathan Gayle of Westminster Kingsway College have been named the first team winners of the Junior Asian Chef Challenge 2013.
Competing against University College Birmingham and University of West London in the final at Hilton London Heathrow Terminal 5, the culinary competition formulated by chef Cyrus Todiwala and The Master Chefs of Great Britain was designed to raise awareness and interest in Asian cuisine among home-grown aspiring chefs.
The Westminster Kingsway team impressed the judges with their superbly cooked and presented four-course pan-Asian dinner and a 10-minute oral presentation, both of which proved their knowledge and understanding of various aspects of Asian cuisine, but particularly their commitment to sustainability.
The winning team can now look forward to a 10-day culinary and learning journey through key cities in India, courtesy of Panasonic, Radisson Blu Plaza Delhi and Ritu Wines.
To enter the competition next year, look out for the new campaign from the Master Chefs of Great Britain - Zest Quest Asia.
