Another NSSCC Win – This time Wei-Zin Chan!

04 May 2020

Wei-Zin has taken first place in the NSSCC – National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge (at home competition) in the Year 9-11 Section.

Judges Comments: Great video and explanation of recipe. Amazing knife skills shown, the avocado rose is something that many chefs would struggle to replicate. Beautiful colours with a great balance of textures and flavours. Not only would this would be a very tasty and nutritious meal to eat it also showcased all ingredients well. Fantastic entry.

Well done Wei-Zin!
