Amy Garner News

National chef award for Bedford College student

Bedford College student, Amy Garner, has won the National Afternoon Tea competition of the Craft Guild of Chefs held in London. Amy was given a “Masterchef” challenge of producing mouth-watering teatime treats in only 3 hours to include a selection of finger sandwiches, savoury and sweet scones and tarts, a decorated Victoria sponge cake, a fruit cake and a variety of teas. In her first year of a 2 year Hospitality course at Bedford College, Amy has won a week’s work placement in the House of Commons, tea for two at the Ritz and a magnificent trophy. She aims to follow in the footsteps of chefs that give her inspiration such as Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey and Delia Smith, and says: “It was a quite a nerve racking experience taking part in the competition, but as soon as I got to work in the kitchen the nerves vanished. It was a very good experience and I have learnt lots. I want to get out there as a chef and improvise my own dishes. My dream is to own my own restaurant.”
