Diners in Wolverhampton wanting to tuck-in to tasty meals cooked by students at City of Wolverhampton College have just a few weeks left to book a table before its restaurant closes for the summer holiday.

Students studying for cookery and hospitality courses will be dishing up two and three course meals in the college’s city centre Academy restaurant at lunchtimes from Tuesday to Friday until June 17, and Thursday evenings until June 16.

Lunch dishes on offer include lamb tagine and couscous, beef carbonnade, and roast pork with apple sauce, followed by desserts such as Dutch apple tart, sticky toffee pudding, and fruit meringues.   

Dinner menus include a South American evening on May 5, Scandinavian supper on May 12 and a North African meal on May 19, as well as a range of traditional dishes on offer during June.

Heath Arnfield, curriculum manager for hospitality at the college, said: “The restaurant has been extremely popular with diners again this academic year and students have cooked and served over 1000 dishes to around 650 customers since October.

“Work in a busy kitchen and restaurant as part of their course is a great opportunity for the students as it not only gives them a taste of what working in a commercial environment will be like, but also gives them important work experience which will look good on their CVs and impress employers when they are applying for jobs in the industry in the future.”  

Lunch in the Academy restaurant costs £7 for two courses or £8.50 for three courses, with three course dinners costing £12.  To book a table call 01902 821431.
