When we arrived at Leeds College yesterday evening for the local final of the Future Chef competition, Hifsa said those words no food teacher wants to hear ..."I've forgotten my chicken!"
Three hours later, her dad taking a quick trip in his Uber to the nearest supermarket and she had won the local final! Industry chefs from Sodexho and Hilton were amongst the judges and they said the flavour of her chicken masala dish was outstanding and they had learnt lots from her! She grew in confidence throughout the competition and the judges and myself were so proud of what she achieved.
A reminder to all students or even staff on Careers Day that sometimes a route you choose doesn't always determine your final outcome. As Hifsa isn't actually a food student, but has been encouraged to consider a career in Hospitality in the future after last night.
Well done Hifsa!
