Student chefs hope their food will be top of the table after the launch of a new training restaurant at a football stadium.
City College Brighton and Hove has opened up City College @ East Central Brasserie inside the new American Express Community Stadium, which is home to Championship side Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club.
It is designed to help train the next generation of chefs to achieve culinary excellence in a working environment, under the supervision of trained chefs. Principal Phil Frier said: “It is a great coup to be involved with this wonderful new stadium and the restaurant is not just providing excellent opportunities for our Level 1 to 3 catering students, it’s a great means of enhancing our reputation in the community.
“The Gallery, the training restaurant we have at the college’s main campus, has gained a fantastic reputation for fine dining and we’ve no doubt customers at the Amex will be delighted with the quality of the food and very reasonable price.”
City College @ East Central Brasserie is open Monday to Friday during term time, caters for more than 100 covers, and gives students the opportunity to train towards delivering an express lunch service.
