It was an exceptional result for Le Cordon Bleu Pâtisserie students when they took out first, second and third places in the recent Le Callebaut Chocolate showpiece competition.
Held at the Ryde Campus, there were 17 competitors from NSI TAFE and Le Cordon Bleu Sydney. They had 4 hours to assemble their pieces onsite before judging.
Despite never having produced competition showpieces before, the three winners of the competition excelled themselves. So a big congratulations to Yi-Ting Goa for coming in first, then Gabriella Harianto in second place and Michelle Goh for her third placing.
The judges stated that the standard overall at the competition was of an extremely high level. Adriano Zumbo was pleased to see so many showpieces entered in the competition, as few establishments encourage this level of work.
We would also like to acknowledge the hard work, dedication and passion that Chef Andre Sandison and his team including Chef Karen Wigston and Chef Joseph Roche have put into both organising the competition and training for the students.
