The Brakes Student Chef Team Challenge is a leading student chef
competition which has been running annually since 1993. The UK competition is
for teams of three full time college students studying hospitality or catering.

people including how they will prepare each course, the cost, working to a
budget of £10 per cover and the ingredients that will be used. These entries

Sam Hutchinson, Jake Solman-Wood and Mathew Clayton from Carshalton College
have been successful in making it through to the London Regional Heat. The
theme for 2012/13 is 'Going Global with World Cuisine' and these three students
put forward a menu that the judges want to see come to life at the London Heat
on Saturday 26 January 2013.
Tom Hall, Catering Team Leader at Carshalton College says "The students worked really hard on coming
up with an impressive three course meal and we are all delighted they have made
it through to the next round. The competition is an ideal way of providing the
students with an opportunity to experience the pressures of a real working
kitchen and develop a further understanding into the associated costs and
planning that goes with working in a successful kitchen."
The competition is run by Brakes, a leading
supplier to the foodservice industry in the UK, Ireland, France and Sweden. The Craft
Guild of Chefs are the official competition partners and provide
support and expertise in the judging process for the heats and final.
