Three of the Carshalton College Hospitality & Catering students have been successful in making it through the first stages in the 2012/13 Brakes Student Chef Team Challenge (SCTC).

The Brakes Student Chef Team Challenge is a leading student chef competition which has been running annually since 1993. The UK competition is for teams of three full time college students studying hospitality or catering. Teams firstly submit their entry with details of a three course meal for four people including how they will prepare each course, the cost, working to a budget of £10 per cover and the ingredients that will be used. These entries are then judged by a panel and a shortlist of teams are chosen to compete in the next stage of the competition, a Regional Heat. There are six Regional Heats with a winner from each region. All winning teams then take part in the live final competition.

Sam Hutchinson, Jake Solman-Wood and Mathew Clayton from Carshalton College have been successful in making it through to the London Regional Heat. The theme for 2012/13 is 'Going Global with World Cuisine' and these three students put forward a menu that the judges want to see come to life at the London Heat on Saturday 26 January 2013.

Tom Hall, Catering Team Leader at Carshalton College says "The students worked really hard on coming up with an impressive three course meal and we are all delighted they have made it through to the next round. The competition is an ideal way of providing the students with an opportunity to experience the pressures of a real working kitchen and develop a further understanding into the associated costs and planning that goes with working in a successful kitchen."

The competition is run by Brakes, a leading supplier to the foodservice industry in the UK, Ireland, France and Sweden. The Craft Guild of Chefs are the official competition partners and provide support and expertise in the judging process for the heats and final.

Carshalton College offers students a variety of Hospitality & Catering courses including Certificates, Diplomas and City and Guilds qualifications in an Introduction to Hospitality, Food and Drink Service and Professional Cookery.

Nightingales is Carshalton College's on-site training restaurant. Meals are prepared and served by our enthusiastic students under the supervision of experienced chefs. The restaurant is open to the public during term time for coffee mornings, lunch, dinner, functions and business events plus our special themed evenings.
