High stakes in principal’s sirloin ‘thank you’ meal
City College Norwich principal Corrienne Peasgood pulled on chef whites to cook dinner for staff who raised £15,000 for the student hardship fund through trekking up
Ms Peasgood and eight other members of the college management team prepared chargrilled watermelon with crispy bacon, sirloin beef, and rhubarb crumble sorbet for 80 guests. A further seven college managers were front-of-house service waiting on the tables, supported by 14 level one and two professional cookery students.
The dinner in the college’s Debut Restaurant was a chance to thank 26 members of staff from the college for completing sponsored treks up Ben Nevis, in Scotland, Scafell Pike, in England, and Mount Snowdon, in Wales in aid of the college’s student hardship fund.
Ms Peasgood said: “It was brilliant for the college management team to go outside our comfort zone and prepare this meal.”
