On July 11th and 12th, a group of NSIA hospitality students participated in the Regional Culinary Fare competition which was held at AUT. With the support of tutors Paul Hill, Elie Briguet and Fabio Olgiati, these students came away with a haul of medals.
NSIA took out first place (top of category) in the Classic Cocktail category with two gold and two silver medals (which also earned NSIA both second and third place). A first place (top of category) placing was also given in the Table Setting/Crumbing Down category where NSIA students received both a gold and a silver medal. Finally, the Barista category saw NSIA students receive a silver medal and a bronze medal.
Campus Manager Barbara Smith recognises the effort put in by all students and staff involved. “Competition training is not for the faint hearted. It takes up a lot of time and requires commitment, dedication and determination from both trainers and students. These virtues made these top results possible for all of these students. We are extremely proud of their achievements.”
Congratulations to all of the students, tutors and other staff involved in the lead up and execution of this event.
