“The final cook-off of the “HGT Taste of the Future” Schools Cooking Competition – open to Year 11 & 12 Students in WA Schools was held on 18th September 2014 at Belmont City College. The competition assisted in raising awareness and promoting chef apprenticeships to secondary school students in responding to labour and skills shortages in the hospitality and tourism industry.
The competition gave students the opportunity to showcase their culinary skills and passion for cooking. Judges for the competition Don Hancey – WA Food Ambassador, Stephen Clarke – Clarke’s of North Beach were impressed by the methodology and quality of food the students produced. Don Hancey said “the students demonstrated their ability to not only produce amazing food but brought passion and fun into the kitchen!”

The prize for the winner is an apprentice scholarship valued at $3000 worth of Training College fees. Additional cash prizes were also awarded to the winner and other place getters.
