“It’s a great opportunity to share my passion for taste, nutrition and provenance of good food. There’s nothing like the delight of seeing a child really taste something for the first time and start to understand the fine balance of flavour and develop their palette” Chef Patron Pascal Canevet
Chef Patron Pascal Canevet is also actively involved with the annual Rotary Young Chef Awards. As a renowned judge he inspires and supports winners to compete at national level. Not just content with engaging with the students on the day he acts as mentor to the winner, offering support, advice and friendship to the regional winner.
“Its very important to offer as much help as you can. Hospitality and catering offer wonderful opportunities to shine but its’ hard work and many take this for granted”
