Hospitality students studying at Hugh Baird College’s L20 Hotel School amazed guests recently at a special dinner at the College’s L20 Restaurant.
The Celebrate Skills Night, was organised and delivered by students following the Level 1 qualification in Professional Cookery and Food Service. Devised to link students with potential employers and provide meaningful work experience as part of the group’s programme of study, the dinner was attended by industry professionals from across the region, college staff and the parents and family members of the student chefs and service staff.
The event also provided students studying for higher level qualifications with the chance to develop their supervisory skills.
Speaking at the event, L20 Hotel School Curriculum Coordinator, Mark Amesbury said:
“Tonight is about students showcasing the skills they’ve developed working alongside College staff and work experience with high profile chefs such as Mark Greenaway, Matt Worswick, Ernst Van Zyl and Simon Radley, just to name a few.”
“The distance they have travelled as chefs and service staff since arriving at the L20 Hotel School in September last year is truly remarkable and that is testament to their hard work and the dedication of the L20 Hotel School staff.”
Hugh Baird College Chair of Governors, Jim Brown, said:
“I thought the quality of food and the standards of service were exceptional and matched that found in some of the top restaurants and hotels in the country. The students really did show off their skills and produced a fantastic menu. The presentation of the dishes was stunning and was matched by the taste of each part of the menu. A night to remember.”
L20 Hotel School student, Emma Partner, said:
“The things I’ve done at College this year have been amazing. I’ve worked with top chefs and I’m looking forward to starting to work in the industry over the summer to get even more experience.”
