Last week our Shrubbery Restaurant hosted its spiciest event yet, with the Silk Road Spice Night. The dishes were inspired by places such as Pakistan, India and Shanghai, with each one have an element or interpretation of spice.
The dishes included Tuna Tataki, Poached Seabass, Spicy Pork Soup, Chocolate Tart and many more. Each one being designed and executed by Catering students in the kitchen, and served by Hospitality students in the restaurant. The food itself was presented akin to a professional kitchen and tasted incredible, there were very few unfinished plates left in the dining room.
The Shrubbery is a great way for students to get real job experience from within the College. Every aspect of the Restaurant and Kitchen is run by the students, including making bookings, running the bar, table service, preparation, clearing up, cooking and decoration. The students in the kitchen create their own menus for certain themes and have freedom in their creativity, they are then responsible for executing their dishes to order on the night of service, and they do a fantastic job every time.
