Students and staff from Wirral Met’s hospitality & catering department joined a team of Michelin-starred chefs to take part in the ‘Take 6 Colleges’ fundraising dinner at Anfield Stadium.
Wirral Met partnered with Gary Jones, Executive Chef at The Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons, to create the fish course at the prestigious fundraising event for Adopt a School. Adopt a School is a national charity which promotes primary food education by sending chefs and hospitality professionals to local schools to help educate children.
During the professional chef’s masterclass session, five students gained invaluable experience and skills whilst learning about the differences between cooking good restaurant meals to creating inspirational, mouth-watering menus which surpass the high expectations of diners.
Meanwhile, five hospitality students developed their experience by supporting the front of house team on the night, learning how important prompt, courteous and friendly service is to creating a positively memorable dining experience. The students learnt how excellent service underpins outstanding meals and how highly rated restaurants view both as critical to their success.
One student commented that "the evening had been an amazing opportunity and very rewarding." Well done to all the students and staff who took part making this event resounding success!
Wirral Met catering and hospitality students take part in a number of different external events across the academic year to support the experience they gain in the College’s training kitchens and restaurant. Wirral Met has been proud to take part in this opportunity to work alongside well renowned professional chefs in aid of the Adopt a School charitable trust, which benefits not only the College’s students but schools across the region.
