North Shropshire College (NSC) recently held a graduation event showcasing the talent of the Level 3 Professional Cookery students. The evening took place in the Scholars Restaurant which is a commercial restaurant based at the College, that is open to the public during term times. The students decided they would like to use this opportunity to fundraise for Hope House, a charity that NSC supports on a regular basis.

The graduation event was organised by Dan Tompson and Phil Bell who are both Hospitality and Catering Lecturers and part of the Commercial Services Department at NSC. All of the dishes available were developed and cooked by the students as part of a menu for their end of term assessment. The menu consisted of 2 and 3-course options, particular favourites proved to be the Steak for the main course and dark chocolate mousse with hazelnut biscuit and raspberry compote for desert. The evening was designed to celebrate the students success throughout their year at NSC, as well as enabling them to display the wide range of culinary skills, knowledge and techniques they have learnt.

Dan comments, ‘The evening was a huge success, the students worked really hard and were delighted to raise £50 on the evening for Hope House. We would also like to thank Lynsey Kilvert, Area fundraiser for Hope House for promoting the evening via Social Media. We wish all of our students the best luck for the future.’
