Former Ritz Head Chef treats Seevic students
Friday, 21 April 2017
Pathways students have been treated with a visit from Martin Buckley, former Head Chef at the Ritz in London and Paris.
The day was set up for our hospitality pathway students by Can Do part of the Leonard Chesire Disability charity. The Can Do project is a volunteering programme to help offer disabled people support, information and training.
The aim for the day was to help students improve their independent living skills as well as cutting, chopping and peeling skills.
The day started with Martin demonstrating some recipes which included:
- Mediterranean cousous
- Turkey meatballs in tomato sauce
- Escalope’s of turkey
- Courgette, bacon, onion and carrot pasta
Students were then giving the opportunity to try this tasty food before cooking some yummy banana and blueberry muffins.
Pathways student Tom Sansom, 16, said: “I felt inspired watching such a good chef cooking; I think I will now try cooking more.
“I have had a great day and learnt a lot. I also enjoyed getting to make my own muffins.”
Martin, who now works for public health, added: “I really enjoy working with people especially when I can share my expertise. I feel like it is a way of giving back.”
Seevic College has been working with the Can Do programme on numerous projects including an upcoming sports project.
The Pathways course at Seevic College is designed for young people who would benefit from learning within a supported environment.
