Food festival develops new catering skills

Catering students helped to bring Manchester Food and Drink Festival to Salford City College.

Working with chefs from award-winning local restaurant Grenache, they prepared and served a gourmet meal for guests at a festival-related event in the college’s training restaurant, The Glass House.

Student Adam Wright, aged 17, said: “We’ve learned a lot while working alongside the Grenache chefs.

“The experience has taught us lots of new skills and taught us to cope well under pressure.”
