Kent staff took part in The University Caterers Organisation’s annual competition (TUCO) held on 10-11 April at Warwick University. The competition saw over 50 members and 150 delegates competing against each other in a wide range of culinary activities.
The TUCO competitions provide an opportunity for members to showcase their skills across a variety of disciplines, from barista skills to speed cooking.

This year the University of Kent was represented by:

  • Scott Tulloch, from Cargo in Medway, who wowed the judges with his signature cocktails in the bar skills category.
  • Dan Weale, from Mungo’s in Eliot College, who showed off his knack for cold brew coffee in the barista skills category.
  • Chinonso Onuigwe and Leighton James, from Dolche Vita and Origins, who together rustled up a tasty three course meal in the Chefs Challenge category.

Despite not returning with a trophy, the four representatives did a fantastic job on behalf of the University of Kent and were thrilled to be a part of the competition.

Scott Tulloch, Bar and Bistro Supervisor, said:
The TUCO Competitions are great because it gives you the motivation and desire to push yourself and learn more about the industry. I have learnt so much from my two days in Warwick.

The Competitions, held at Warwick University, are enhanced with a table-top exhibition from industry suppliers with innovations and new products for delegates to sample, culinary classes, and social dinners.
