On Thursday 22 October, six Year 10 and two Year 9 students lined up in their aprons ready to be the first Cairns High Master Chef contestants.

During the heats each contestant had to cook and present a “signature dish,” in 70 minutes. All catering classes across year 9 and 10 were invited to enter the competition.

This was well received with twenty three students cooking off for the final 8 positions. Jacob Bonham, Summer Norton, Minna Davis, Jerome Fritz, Marina Genesio Pak Poy, Angus Griffin, Paul Raleigh and Laura Woodcock were the lucky and talented finalists.

A week before the finalists had to cook for the judges, they were given the task of finding or creating a stir fry dish to be cooked in the ‘pressure test’. The contestants were supplied with all the ingredients, and were given 70 minutes to create and serve the dish.

The task was simple, but could they complete it? The judges each tested and critiqued the dishes and made a final decision. The winner, with the best Stir fry, was ….

Minna Davis!

Congratulations were given to all, and Minna left with a granite chopping board and the grand title of  ‘Cairns High 2009 Master Chef’.

We would like to mention a special thank you to Ivan and Jo Gomizelj from The Marble and Granite Fitters Cairns, The Edge Greengrocer and Edge Hill Butchery for their generous donations and support of the competition.
