Cairns High Masterchef 2012

On Wednesday October 24th, four year nine and three year ten students took part in a Masterchef Competition.

The competition was open to all year nine and ten catering and home economics students. Of the 25 entrants, 7 made it to the finals.

The finalists had to prepare and present a dish to a panel of judges in 70 minutes. The meal had to be a main course dish.

The finalists selected were Genevieve Dietz, Kira McDonald, Niamh McDonagh, Daniel Healslip, Jaxon Fitzsimmons, Jessica Veitch and Anna Kirkwood.

The judges tasted each dish and critiqued the dishes before coming to a final decision. There was a delicious array of main meals including ‘Crispy skin Atlantic Salmon’ and ‘Rack of Lamb with Macadamia Nut crust’. The winner was Daniel Healslip of year nine with his fantastic ‘Bush Tucker Surf and Turf’. Second place was awarded to Kira McDonald and third place to Niamh McDonagh.

The prize winners were awarded beautiful gifts donated by Mrs Jo Gomizelj from The Marble and Granite Fitters Cairns which included a granite chopping board, mini stick blender and a rice cooker.

We all really enjoyed the experience of the competition!
