On October 25th, LaSalle College hosted the final event of the third edition of the Perou Gourmet contest. Organized by the Chamber of Commerce Peru-Canada of Montreal in partnership with LaSalle College, the contest is open to students enrolled in a full-time culinary program and who are 18 years of age or older.
The first jury selection was on October 3rd and 6 semi-finalists went on to the next step. During the semi-finals on October 17th at Le Fuchsia restaurant, two out of the three selected finalists were from the LaSalle College’s Professional Cooking DEP program.
More than a hundred people attended the final where our students, Andreza Thomaz de Lima and Simon Beaupré, respectively won the second and third place, sharing a $600 bursary. Maria de los Angeles Ortiz from Pearson Culinary School won the grand prize, a one-week gourmet trip to Peru.
Congratulations to all winners!
