The West Coast Academy of Hospitality and Tourism has shown the world just how good it is by defeating Thailand and Singapore at the intercontinental culinary competition, WA Oceanafest.
Cookery lecturer Nathan McMurdo led three students through a gruelling live cook-off against two Asian training establishments: The Thailand Catering University and Singapore’s Shatec.
The team had to produce an entrée, main and desert dish under extreme pressure and in just 50 minutes, before presenting their dishes to a panel of judges. The team (consisting of Nathan McMurdo, Malcolm Cousins, Ryan Larsen and Miyuki Tamura) managed to clinch gold, and the academy was named “Most Outstanding Training Provider.”
“At a time when WA is experiencing skills shortages in the hospitality industry, it is so pleasing to see our Academy producing students with the right skills to compete and win on the world stage,” said Nathan.
Well done to the team, and of course to the Academy; keep up the great work and continue to make our State proud!
