The Newbury College professional catering team are due to welcome 15 students from the Julius Wegeler School, Koblenz, Germany, for the week on the 4th November, to share experiences and dazzle dishes, as the Restaurant lunch service themes its menu to reflect the German inspiration on hand.
This is the third year that the school has visited, and the College will escort the visitors throughout the week. On Monday the group will visit Havant & South Downs College and then take a trip to Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth, Tuesday students will be exchanging experiences and ideas as they prep for Wednesday’s lunch service, which is already fully booked! Wednesday will be a shared day of cooking and hospitality. On Thursday the students will be escorted to The Vineyard for a perfectly British, afternoon tea.
Malcolm Baggot, Course Leader, Professional Catering, commented “This is a great opportunity for our students to experience working with chefs from other countries and preparing a themed menu with new and exciting ingredients. We are delighted to be able to support the Julius Wegeler School and look forward to the exchange visit.”
The Restaurant at Newbury College provides a lunch service on Wednesday and Friday between 12:30 – 1:30 during term time, throughout the year, allowing the professional catering students to hone their preparation, cooking and hospitality skills in a real working environment, overseen by Malcolm Baggot and Anthony Millon.
