Budding Masterchefs to Cook up a Storm at Junior Academy
City College is running a Junior Chef Academy this autumn to give 14 – 16 year olds a taste for a career in catering. Held in the College’s state-of-the-art training kitchens, the young chefs will learn how to cook with confidence and style.
Starting on Tuesday 4 October, the sessions run once a week 5.00pm – 7.00pm to fit around school and homework. A range of unusual and interesting dishes are on the menu, which can be taken home for the whole family to enjoy. On the final evening of the nine-week course, students will prepare a mouth-watering graduation buffet for invited guests.
“The Junior Chef Academy is a great opportunity for young chefs to develop their cooking skills and to explore their creativity in the kitchen,” said Chaz Talbot, Academy Manager for Hospitality and Catering.
“It will whet their appetites for hospitality and catering as a career to pursue in the future and our experienced chefs will be on hand to give lots of advice about working in the industry. Many of our previous junior chefs have come back to study with us full-time.”
The Junior Chef Academy is one of a series of academies offered by the College throughout the year to give young students the chance to explore a hobby or interest, as well as an insight into what it is like to study a course full-time. Other junior academies include automotive, construction and hair and beauty.
For those interested in full-time courses, it’s not too late for this autumn. The College is running Course Information Drop-ins at Kings Road every Wednesday in September 4.30pm – 6.30pm. Visit our events page for more information.
