Westminster Kingsway Catering College has announced its Chinese Masterchef 2008 winner as Zhan Hong Yu of the Royal China Club.
Eight shortlisted entrants competed for a £1,000 first prize, including flights to Hong Kong, and were judged by a team of top chefs, including celebrity chef Nancy Lam and Chinese Masterchef William Poon, on their skill, creativity, originality and standard of food hygiene.
The competition, which is now in its fifth year, is run by Westminster Council’s Food Hygiene Team to highlight the city, the home of Chinatown, as the number one destination for oriental food in the UK.
Norman Fu, Senior Chef Lecturer at Westminster Kingsway, said: “We are really pleased to be hosting the competition once again. The event brings members of the local Chinese Community into Westminster Kingsway College to see the range of culinary courses that we offer.”
The college offers a wide range of hospitality and catering courses, as well as exchange links with colleges in Beijing. Visit www.westking.ac.uk for more information.
