“The equipment is industry standard – there’s a pastry room as well as the kitchens and the teachers show you lots of different techniques using the equipment. I entered the Wessex Salon Culinaire competition in April and I won a silver medal for my chicken dish.”
"I've had good feedback from the teachers which has really helped me. I've started working at Heathrow Terminal 4 where I am able to use the skills I've learnt on the course to serve customers in the restaurant."
