CCMS Student a Winner in Food Writers Competition
Ms Trushka Soni, a student from the Centre for Communication, Media and Society (CCMS), was one of five winners in the Young Food Writers Competition sponsored by the South African Egg Industry.
An aim of the competition was to discover the country’s most promising food writers from previously disadvantaged backgrounds. ‘I am extremely happy to be among the five winners and it was a great experience for me as I am passionate about both cooking and writing,’ said Trushka.
‘I had to create two recipes using egg as the main ingredient and make one of the dishes and take a picture of it. I then had to motivate why I should be selected for the programme.’
The competition gave Soni the opportunity to meet and mingle with South Africa’s top chefs Siba and Reuben.
She won a Kenwood kitchen appliance and a one-week internship at a leading publication. This opportunity for work experience will give her an idea of the everyday functioning of a magazine and the requirements of a career in food journalism.- Melissa Mungroo
