On 16th April, Newquay Tretherras welcomed Nick Evans, the Head Chef of Rick Stein’s restaurant St Petroc’s Bistro, for another NT Chef Master Class.
The students were treated to a demonstration of how to cook a classic shepherd’s pie, but made with a rich filling of ox cheek.
The chef also showed the group how to make a minimal chocolate mousse, using only chocolate and water.
Year 7 student, Mia Mills said, “I don’t normally like beef but I tried it in the shepherd’s pie and it was really nice!”
Jack Griffin, a Year 8 competitor commented, “Even though the meat was quite expensive, it was so worth it as it was really tasty and tender. The mousse was really easy to make too so I think I will try and make it myself in the semi-final round.”
The NT Chef competition continues next week with the first semi-final heat taking place in the school’s catering facilities.
