7th Floor Wins Iron Chef Competition

Warrane's annual iron chef college event

Boys hard at work preparing food that are soon to be judged

7th floor were victorious in the inaugural Warrane ‘Iron Chef’ competition this evening. Teams from each of the floors were required to prepare a main course and desert in 30 minutes. They were free to choose their own ingredients beforehand but had to incorporate a ‘mystery ingredient’- an artichoke- into their meal.

One of the judges for the event, Dr Mark Schembri, said he was “incredibly impressed with the skills on display. It was a pleasure to judge this competition”.

Taz Chuck, the diminutive head cook for the winning floor, emphasized the importance of teamwork in his victory speech. “Everyone contributed something and we just remained calm,” he said.

Cultural director and organiser Matthew Saxby said “”The world of cooking, for most residents, is a daunting one. Having said that I think that most residents ran into this world with no fear, ready to do just about anything.” He hopes the competition will become a yearly event.
