Hospitality and Catering students studying at the Isle of Wight College have recently entered the prestigious national Nestle Toque D’or competition.
Five highly skilled level 2 and 3 students from the Isle of Wight College were entered into the national competition and were tasked with delivering a high-end meal or cocktail via the Olio food app with a focus on local produce and sustainability. Out of over 1,000 entries from colleges across the country, only 12 finalists have been chosen.
From the five students, two have been chosen to progress to the final which will be held in London. Jess Metcalf who is studying a Level 3 Supervisor Apprenticeship and Marc Barker who is studying Level 3 Hospitality Supervision and Leadership will be joined by their college mentor and restaurant manager Emmanuel Ferdinand:
‘It has been a long journey to reach the final, and I am very proud of all the students which have participated (kitchen and front of house). I would like them to win, and we will do our best to do so – an amazing achievement for our college. I am proud to have such amazing students.’
