The winners

Erica’s winning team

This month has seen the finals of the Schools Cookery Competition. The judges have spent 6 days tasting food prepared, cooked and served by the students of Almancil and Algoz schools. They have been treated to some interesting and delicious dishes. The grand final took place at the Conrad Hotel. The students were presented with a black box of ingredients and ask to cook and serve a three course meal. They mastered the high tech kitchen at the Conrad Hotel and Pedro’s team from Almancil produced prawns in garlic, filet steak with spinach, potatoes and caramelised onion followed by a chocolate mousse. Erica’s team from Algoz cooked prawns in a Marie Rose and brandy sauce, filet steak with spinach and parsnip pureé and an orange desert. The competition was very close but after much debate, Algoz School were declared the winners by a squeak. The presentation to the winners will be at the joint dinner meeting of the Almancil and Silves clubs on the 2 April at the Conrad Hotel.
