How would you make the humble potato the star of a dish? A dish that is to be cooked for 900 people in the British Potato Industry at the Harrogate International Centre, oh and the potato can only be moved six times from preparing to plating!
It’s competition time for our Catering & Hospitality students! They will be put through their potato paces to find one winner whose dish will feature at the British Potato Industry dinner in October. The rest of the group will have the honour of cooking the dish for the 900 guests, in the working kitchens of the Harrogate International Centre.
The lucky winner will not only see their potato creation come to life on the plates of the guests, but will also win a meal for four people, generously donated by Harrogate’s brand new burger restaurant, Burgers & More.
The students have already visited the HIC to check out the kitchens and to put pen to paper, to come up with their initial potato ideas.
Watch this space to follow the potato story and to find out who the winner of this exciting competition will be!
