West London College Hospitality & Catering students served a delicious four-course meal for 70 guests whilst being coached by four of London’s most highly-skilled chefs; Tom Booton on the starter, Galton Blackiston on the fish course, Dipna Anand on the main course and Jesse Dunford Wood on the dessert.

Tom Booton said: “I was very impressed with the students and have really enjoyed my time here at West London College, I would happily welcome the students into my kitchen based on their performance today.”

Hosting The London Chefs’ Lunch underlined the college’s commitment to inspiring young chefs and enriching the students’ learner journey through work experience and skills development opportunities at industry level.  

 Denise Charles, Head of Curriculum in Services Industries, said: “Today has been an inspiring experience for our students, they love to work with different chefs and learn new cooking techniques. Working at this event gave our learners the opportunity to put their professionalism, knowledge and skills to the test in an industry-standard event.”  

The Chefs’ Forum Educational Foundation CIC  is an organisation incorporated by Catherine Farinha and Alexandra Duncan in October 2016 to bridge the gap between industry and education and to raise vital funds to help disadvantaged young people to enter the hospitality business, by linking them up with employers and providing essential support and equipment.
