Catering students cook for the Prime Minster

Our Catering students Molly Porter, Chloe Cook and Kiera Brammah have gained valuable catering experience at the annual Farnborough International Air Show.

Under the supervision of the College’s Catering and Hospitality Course Leader Martyn Hollingsworth and tutor James Key, the students helped produce and dispatch dishes which catered for more than 800 people, including the Prime Minister, Theresa May.

The Air Show was held over a week with a variety of complex dishes such as wild rice with turmeric cauliflower, giant cous cous with roasted vegetables, smoked mackerel fillets with rosti potatoes and crab and sweet corn cigars.

Molly Porter, 19, from Wath-upon-Dearne, said: “The opportunity was a once-in-a-lifetime moment that I will never forget! To say I have cooked for the Prime Minister is an incredible honour. I have learnt so much from inspirational catering professionals and was able to apply the cookery skills I gained within my course.”

Martyn Hollingsworth added: “Catering for such a high-profile event was a challenge for myself and my colleague, who are highly-qualified and experienced, so for our students to take on the challenge and do such a wonderful job is extraordinary.

“They worked to professional standards throughout the week and were praised by industry experts for their diligence and remarkable work ethic.”
