Have you heard of the Brakes Student Chef Team Challenge? Well, it’s a leading culinary competition open to teams of full-time hospitality or catering college students – so they know their stuff about food and young people. We invited them to write a Blog post about students and cooking, offering their view and advice which we hope you find helpful! So, what are you waiting for – be inspired to get in the kitchen!
THE GOURMAND STUDENT
Students have traditionally gained something of a reputation for their lack of culinary prowess. Stories of burnt fish finger sandwiches, Pot Noodles and boil-in-the-bag suppers are as bountiful as the kebabs eaten on a Friday night.
However there are a growing number of young gourmands who are realising that taking an interest in food is not only good for the taste buds, but can help improve sustainability, keep individuals healthy – and improve their love lives!
