Apprentice chef scores second place
Apprentice Chef Maxine Murphy's first attempt at competing in WorldSkills has awarded her a second place spot and helped her ambition to work in hospitality rise to the surface.
Maxine, a second year apprentice at The Waterline Restaurant at Keppel Bay Marina, placed second in the recent event, just one-and-a-half points behind ultimate winner, Tim Peet, from Mackay.
"It was my first time competing in WorldSkills and even though I'm a little disappointed in my performance, I enjoyed the challenge," she said.
"(The menu) didn't stress me out too much, but the pre-training was pretty full on."
Maxine said she still had one more year to finish her apprenticeship, but she hoped to operate her own catering business in the future.
