Book a festive fundraising feast at Trafford College’s Aspire Restaurant

The Trafford College Group’s Aspire Restaurant is looking forward to welcoming diners to its sellout festive dinner, which is taking place on Wednesday 5 December, to raise funds to send its hospitality and catering students to France.

Every year, Lecturer John Pitt, takes a group of young people to the French college, Lycee Hotelier de L’Hermitage near Lyon, where they enhance their culinary and service skills by learning from their French counterparts.

Students stay with local families as part of the visit and attend lessons in the college’s specialised kitchens, bars, restaurants and wine laboratory.

John commented, “Students feel more confident and capable after coming back from France, where they learn all sorts of skills, including more about pairing wine with food.”

This year, the college’s young people are in for a special treat as a new chocolate academy, Val Rhona, has opened within the college in France.

Former Trafford College student, Cameron Whiteside-Sumner, who took part in the exchange last year said, “The Lycee experience was amazing! We shared a range of new experiences that enhanced our learning. We saw the production of wine and different styles of service, and we made new friends whom we have kept in touch with since. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to return.”

In exchange, students from the French college will fly over to Manchester where they will get a taste of work placements as well as student life at Trafford College’s Altrincham campus.

Diners at tomorrow’s fundraiser will be served three-courses of foie gras followed by a lamb main, and chocolate desserts made by the college’s talented students.

Bon appetit!
