Lakefield rises to the occasion in Birmingham, the Great Hospitality Show 2017
Lakefield rises to the occasion in Birmingham, the Great Hospitality Show 2017. For the first time, Lakefield joined one of the leading competition in the Hospitality Industry, the Great Hospitality Show- the UK’s largest event and most comprehensive competition for Food Service and Hospitality 2017 which held in NEC Birmingham on the 24th of January.
Level 2 Food and Beverage student, Medinah Belgrave from Trinidad got 2 silver medals for her Table Layup and Cocktail Mixology competitions. Medinah Belgrave competed against many colleges in Table Layup Competition.
The competitor had 20 minutes to lay a table for 4 covers with different napkin folds, with the wine recommendations needed for each course.
In Mixology Cocktail, Medinah worked very hard to be able to come up with her own recipes, the Trinidadian Rum Punch and Pina Colada. The judges were impressed by Medinah for several reasons, including: unique and creative napkin folds which judges have not seen in the show, impressive mixology skills and cocktails inspired by Trinidad, well thought-out presentation of cocktails, professional and smart appearance, engaging conversation skills with the judges, a vital skill for the industry and technical skills and well thought organisation plan for both classes.
“We are delighted to have won silver medals in this kind of competition and we believe that by joining more competitions, we help and enhance student’s confidence and skills to be able to work in the Industry. By inspiring students, Lakefield hope to deliver young aspiring professionals to work in future in which everyone in the industry can be proud of”.
