Various industry suppliers and highly skilled chefs from London-based restaurants attended the event where Jack Cook of Walter Rose and Son demonstrated inspiring pork butchery and Chef Director Alessandro Verdenelli and pasta-making aficionado, Massimo Mioli performed an expert Italian cookery demonstration.  

West London College students joined forces with international students from Westminster Kingsway College to create canapés from the Chucs menu with ingredients provided by Chef’s Forum sponsors First Choice Produce, Walter Rose & Sons and Koppert Cress, and participated in Bragard UK’s fashion show to showcase the latest chef styles and front of house uniforms.

Denise Charles, Head of Curriculum for Service Industries at West London College told the industry professionals how valuable she finds The Chefs’ Forum. She said: “The students really enjoy Chefs’ Forum events as it gives them the chance to get real industry experience whilst still at college with us.  It is a great platform for them to build confidence in forging links with employers and securing work experience.”

The Chefs’ Forum continues to go from strength in London and the impressive level of attendance in the quarter four event was a real testament to its popularity amongst London chefs and hospitality students alike.

West London College is looking forward to hosting a Chefs’ Lunch in the New Year. The Chefs’ Forum stages quarterly events to enhance top chefs’ skill sets and strengthen links with local catering colleges to inspire and enthuse the next generation of young chefs.
