Cheshire foodies got more than a culinary taste of India when hospitality and catering students teamed up with travel and tourism events management learners.

A spicy four-course meal was backed up with holiday destination promotions during an Indian-themed night at South Cheshire College’s Restaurant on the Crescent.

Chefs from Bombay Restaurant in Crewe oversaw hospitality and catering students as they sent dishes, including onion bhajis and chicken tikka balti, out to more than 35 guests.

Bombay chef Raz Hoque said: “This was something completely different for us. We look forward to working with the college again in the future.”

Chef lecturer Shane Guildford said: “It was great for our students to work with chefs from one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. It gave them the chance to serve different food dishes under expert guidance.”
