NMIT Apprentice Chefs take on a Master Mystery Box Challenge

18 Jun 2014

On Tuesday 24 June, graduating apprentice chefs from NMIT’s Certificate III in Commercial Cookery will demonstrate their mastery of food preparation skills when they participate in a Master Mystery Box Challenge at St Georges Restaurant, Preston.

Their challenge is to prepare a five course menu with matching NMIT wines for each course from a set list of available ingredients.

NMIT students have successfully risen to the challenge in the past, unleashing their creativity to a full house at St Georges Restaurant last year. And in 2011, our apprentice chef team won the prestigious gold medal in the Victorian TAFE Cookery Challenge using a ‘mystery box’ of ingredients.

In 2012, St Georges restaurant was awarded the Best Restaurant in Training Institute at the Victorian state final of the 2012 Savour Australia Restaurant and Catering HOSTPLUS Awards for Excellence.


WHERE: St Georges Restaurant, NMIT Preston Campus

WHEN: 6.30 pm, Tuesday 24 June 2014
