Catering and Hospitality students from Bath College recently prepared canapés for top chefs under the expert eyes of Hywel Jones, Executive Chef at Lucknam Park. The Chefs’ Forum event began with a Nyetimber and canapé reception prepared with the help of students from the College.
Chefs from Bath and the Cotwolds went on to show off their physical skills, as well as their cooking skills at the September meeting of The Chefs’ Forum. Guests at the event, which was held at the beautiful Lucknam Park Hotel near Colerne, had the chance to try their hand at axe throwing and archery, alongside the rather more genteel activity of tea tasting, and a tour of the hotel’s kitchen garden.
Hywel said: “Thanks to the students for all their help, and thanks also to the sponsors and all those who supplied the ingredients.”
Bridget Halford, Head of Department for Hospitality, Hair, Beauty and Spa at Bath College, spoke about how The Chefs’ Forum events benefit the students. She said “We are lucky to be able to work with key figures in the hospitality and catering industry. This opportunity at Lucknam Park has given our students key skills which will help their employability longer term.”
