Up-and-coming chefs from Northbrook College went head to head in a MasterChef style evening, cooking up some exquisite food for 80 guests whilst raising an incredible £2184 for the Starr Trust

Assisted by their college tutors and mentored by Russell Williams of Bailiffscourt Hotel, the two trainee chefs - Abigail Illes and Robert Whittington - created a 6-course menu where diners voted on the winning dishes.

Diners enjoyed a glass of champagne upon arrival in the Arundel restaurant on campus and went on to critique delicious dishes that included a port marinated foie gras ballontine with caramelised pear puree, truffled french beans and red onion focaccia.

The winning chef Robert is currently working at Bailiffscourt as well as attending college.

Tracey Narvaez from The Starr Trust said: “This sold out event is now in its third year and we’re so grateful to Russell for his time and expertise, to the hard working college tutors who put in extra hours to run this event and to Sascha Koehler and Brighton Hilton Metropole for their continued sponsorship. Not only do they help financially, they also provide the students with anything practical they may need in order to showcase their food.”
