World class catering on the coast

Culinary education has never tasted so good for young chefs in Dorset, after the world’s leading chefs recognized their college’s catering department as among the best in the world.

Bournemouth and Poole College is the first FE college and only the third college in Europe to receive the Recognition of Quality award from a global network of top cooks, the World Association of Chefs Societies.

The college currently has students on placements at some of London’s top kitchens, including 12 at The Ritz, four at Claridges and three at Buckingham Palace.

Bournemouth and Poole college head of hospitality Adrian Martin said: “Our catering department has long been considered one of the best in the country and has won multiple awards and acclaim over the years. However this award is very different.

“We are all buzzing here. It is due to a huge amount of hard work on the staff’s part but also to the work students have put in.”
