Professional cookery students from Accrington and Rossendale College’s Hospitality and Catering Department will get the chance to put their culinary skills to the test, hosting their very own “Brought to You By” evening.

The evenings, which have been devised and created by Level 3 students and will run at various dates throughout the year, give learners the chance to have complete control of the kitchen and front of house.

First to put her skills to the test is Rachel Pinder (20), of Clitheroe. The former Assheton Arms Commis Chef will take full control of the restaurant and kitchens on Thursday November 10th and has based her menu around Bonfire Night.

The evening, which has been titled “Knives and Fawkes” and sold out extremely quickly, features a rich taste of flavours spread across starters, mains and desserts including spiced beef rump, salt and Szechuan pepper king prawns and popping candy crisp and toffee apple cake with ginger fudge bonfire frosting.

Rachel said: “I am feeling confident about hosting my very own theme evening in Roots Restaurant. I feel that working at the Assheton Arms since I was 14 years old has helped me to prepare for this.”

Next to host after Rachel is Level 3 Professional Cookery student Callum Burrill who works as a Commis Chef at Mitton Hall. Callum’s theme is “Game Around The World” and will take place on Thursday November 24th.
