Bake Off Chetna’s ‘sweet’ tweet praises college food

Great British Bake-Off contestant Chetna Makan took to Twitter to praise the “amazing” lunch served for her at East Kent College.

The fashion designer, who lives near the college, enjoyed a smoked salmon nicoise salad.

She then tried a selection of chocolate-based desserts, including profiterroles made with choux pastry which she baked on the show, at the college restaurant, which is open to the public.

After finishing her meal Chetna, who came fourth in the BBC series judged by Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, tweeted: “Amazing lunch today at @EastKentCollege !! Had a brilliant time!”

Natalie Stone, restaurant team leader, said: “The students were very excited about cooking for and serving Chetna. She was very happy to chat and have her picture taken with them after she had finished her food. It was really sweet of her to say nice things about the restaurant too on Twitter.”
