Year 10 student Dylan said:

"The trip was a great experience!  The facilities at the college were high quality and it was good to meet the course tutors who were friendly and helpful. The quality of the food in the restaurant was excellent; it was tasty and well-presented."

The day also included a visit to The Glass House, the dedicated restaurant run by the Hospitality and Culinary Arts students under the supervision of college tutors.  

Students enjoyed an exquisite two course lunch menu of chicken escalope with dauphinoise potatoes, vegetables and tomato sauce followed by a chocolate brownie with almond ice cream and hot chocolate sauce.

"A big ‘thank you’ to Martin Coughlan and his team;  this visit was a fantastic opportunity for Wellacre students to be able to consider their next possible steps after GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition."

Wellacre’s budding chefs were also challenged to a cake and biscuit decorating competition in the college kitchens.

“The competition was of an extremely high standard so it was tough to judge! Congratulations to Ethan and Alex who were named the winners and to the whole group who showed Worsley College staff the calibre of chefs we are nurturing at Wellacre.”
