Chefs from Cambridge University and the Colleges were also invited to enter a Live Cookery Competition, which took place on Wednesday at Cambridge Regional College. Representing Pembroke as one of the ten competitors was Elvis 'Sasa' Williams. Below is the menu that Sasa produced.
The competitors were able to use the new state of the art cooking facilities at the newly opened Cambridge Regional Colleges Kings Hedges Campus. As you can see in the two photos below, Sasa had plenty of room and great equipment at his disposal. Each contestant was given 2 hours to prepare and serve a two course meal using products from the Major Company's range of stocks and bases. Judging the contest were representatives from Major foods, Cambridge Regional College and the University.
