Three of our catering students joined top Welsh chef James Sommerin to cook up a winning menu of canapés at his Michelin-starred Penarth restaurant.
Amy Hughes, Ryan Ranby and Daniel Lewis were able to pick up some top tips at the Chefs’ Forum event, held as part of a week-long series of festivities to celebrate Welsh lamb and to herald the launch of the Chefs’ Forum Academy at Coleg Gwent this September.
They arrived on the day (Monday, August 5) to help prepare canapés and set up the event for eighty culinary experts from across Wales who were given a glimpse of James’ award-winning set-up. James said, “The students tried really hard and coped well with some complex tasks given to them. It was clear that they were inspired and that was great to see.”
James and his daughter Georgia, also his sous chef, will be joining thirty other Welsh chefs in delivering an enhanced programme of study to hospitality and catering students at Coleg Gwent. It’s the fifth in a series of Chefs’ Forum Academies in colleges on a national level that see top chefs join forces to bridge the gap between education and industry and inspire the next generation of chefs through curriculum enrichment.
