Solid foundation provided for next generation of chefs

The Junior Chefs’ Academy teaches young people about food preparation and cookery techniques using fresh ingredients, simple nutrition and basic kitchen hygiene and safety. The event was marked by a three course lunch prepared by the junior chefs for their parents and guardians in Pillars, the University of West London’s fine dining training restaurant. Ben Purton, Executive Chef of the Lancaster Hotel presented the graduates with medals and certificates during the lunch.

Gareth commented “it is a privilege to be able to support young people and see them develop through their training. The foundation exists to advance education and learning and I believe that these students will be an absolute asset to any future establishment”.

Applications are still open for the next Junior Chefs’ Academy enrolment date, 24 September 2016. For more information, contact Sadie Higham (sadie.higham@uwl.ac.uk).
