Sros is Honoured to Win John Patrick Conway Award
Sros Pisey Nou has won this year's John Patrick Conway Award, which recognises excellence in baking among William Angliss Institute students.
"The competition, pushed my creative boundaries, taught me lessons in time management and allowed me to meet other talented student competitors," said Sros.
"Winning the John Patrick Conway Award was an incredible honour, that I'll always cherish. This award will significantly increase my credibility and showcase my dedication to the industry and expertise in the field," she added.
Having just completed her Certificate III in Baking at the Institute, Sros made a strong impression on the judges with her beautifully displayed range of pastries including Danish pastries, petit éclairs and fruit flans.
All competitors were judged against strict criteria and were also required to submit a written component and make a presentation to the judges.
The judging panel consisted of Venkat Swaroop from Pan Pacific Melbourne, Pierre Rioual from Ned's Bake and William Angliss Institute Bakery Teacher Troy Hanson.
While studying baking, Sros worked at Frank & Harri Patisserie which she said was an inspiring, insightful and delicious experience. "My goal is to join a bakery or pastry shop to further develop my skills and continue enjoying crafting delightful pastries," Sros explained.
The John Patrick Conway award is made possible through a bequest from the estate of the late Mrs Leah Conway to acknowledge the memory of her late husband, John Patrick Conway, who was for many years one of Melbourne's most highly regarded bakers.
William Angliss Institute has a commitment to collaborating with industry to enhance the student learning experience.
