Derby Day Delight For Catering Students
Four students from our catering department were fortunate enough to be invited by Head Chef Howard Bisset to help support his team at this year’s Epsom Derby at the Royal Automobile Club, Woodcote Park.
The first challenge for the students and the team was Ladies Day. The club hosted a buffet lunch where 400 guests sat, this was followed the next day by the main event, The Investec Derby, where 800 guests were treated to a buffet lunch and afternoon tea.
The experience allowed the students to gain an insight into life in the industry within one of the country’s most prestigious private clubs as well as seeing professional chefs at work, under pressure, delivering stunning final dishes.
Head Chef Howard Bisset said “I can only say that the students did an amazing job, they had a level of commitment that we see in most of your students from PRC and I am sure there will be jobs for them at the club should they require employment in the future.”
