Year 9 and 10 Hospitality and Catering
On Wednesday our year 9 and 10 Hospitality and Catering students visited Cheltenham College to take part in an interactive session organised by The Chef's Forum. The Chef’s Forum are a group of top chefs from across the south of the UK who have joined forces with local catering colleges to support the next generation of young chefs. Among many skills our students were taught how to fillet a steak of venison. Kuba Winkowski, the National Chef of the Year 2019, made a delicious dish of venison and fried dumplings with our very own Courtney Simpson, Year 10, and Troy Childs, Year 9, supporting him in the professional kitchen. The session ended with a chocolate eclair competition with two students from each of the 5 schools present taking part. Congratulations go to Liberty Pitt and Alex Beardsell, both in Year 9, who came second and third respectively.
Apparently, our students did us all proud as staff of other schools and the event organisers commented frequently on just how incredible their behaviour and manners were. Well done all!
