As temperatures continue to drop in Fife, some of the best professional and student chefs gathered for an industry event focused on ice-cream last night (Wednesday 20 January 2016).
Chefs from Rufflets Country House Hotel and St Andrews Links Trust, alongside around twenty student chefs from SRUC Elmwood Campus and Dundee and Angus College, attended the event at Jannettas Gelateria, St Andrews.
The group enjoyed a talk and demonstration from co-owner Owen Hazel, who gave a passionate insight into the history of the business, which has been operating from its original St Andrews site since 1908, while the chefs and student chefs asked questions about the artisan methods used in Jannettas’ ice-cream making, seasonality and the importance of using local ingredients.
Meanwhile, Dundee and Angus College student Amy Carscaden (17), from Kinross, decorated her award-winning Baked Alaska. She won a hotly contested baking challenge during a Dundee Science Festival event in November, judged and presented by Chris Law, Dundee West SNP MP, who trained as a Chef at the College.
