One of the country’s leading restaurants has given a skills masterclass to Sheffield College catering students.
The Fat Duck’s Edward Cooke, head chef, and Dimitri Bellos, restaurant manager, showed 60 students how to create the fish dish ‘Then we went rockpooling’ which is
on the restaurant’s menu.
They also spoke about the ethos behind the restaurant and finished the demonstration with a tasting of white chocolate and caviar.
The globally renowned and multi award-winning Fat Duck restaurant, based in Bray, Berkshire, is owned by celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal and has three Michelin stars.
Dimitri said: “It is a great pleasure and an honour to be able to share some of our ideas and key elements on the way we think with the future of our industry.
“We hope to be back in Sheffield again soon.”
