Congratulations to Maggie Carroll and Liza Khorozova who are now National Culinary Champions having won the National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge 2018, held recently at the Manukau Institute of Technology.

Our team competed against 8 regional winning teams come away with gold medals. They had to prepare, cook and present, four individually plated portions of an entrée and four portions of the main course within 90 minutes.
