Cookery demonstrations and master classes are on the menu at Weston College later this month as some of the South West's top chefs gather for a major event.
The Chefs' Forum, a collective of industry professionals dedicated to sharing their skills with young people in education, is to meet at Weston College's Hans Price Conference Centre on Monday October 14, linking up with the College's catering students to provide a day of events and industry networking.
Arthur Potts-Dawson, a TV chef who helped Jamie Oliver launch his 'Fifteen' chain of restaurants, will be helping students prepare welcome canapés before giving a talk and a demonstration in the afternoon.
He will be joined by James Wilkins, Bristol's newest Michelin-starred chef, and Amy Hunt, a former Weston College student who has opened her own restaurant, Oak & Glass, in Uphill, Weston-super-Mare.
Chefs and industry representatives from across the South West have been invited to the event, marking the College's new partnership with the Chefs' Forum.
Graham Smith, Weston College's Training Manager, Hospitality and Event Management, said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for us at Weston College. The involvement of the area's leading chefs enriches our students' experience because they will be learning with the best chefs at the top of their game."
