Students bring home Culinary Salon medals from the Toronto Food Show.

Three students from the School of Tourism and Hospitality successfully competed in the Culinary Salon competition at the Toronto Food Show this past weekend.

The Salon is held every year as part of the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association (CRFA) show, Canada's biggest event for the restaurant and hospitality industry.

After months of hard work and practice, each student put their work on display for judging under the strict international rules of the World Association of Chefs Societies.

Fanshawe students won the following medals in the wedding cake category:

  • Robyn Fenelon, silver medal
  • Ankita Vaidya, silver medal

Fanshawe has won more than 50 medals in the seven years the College has been entering the Culinary Salon competition.
