Budding chefs visit capital of food

June 21, 2013

A group of budding chefs from West Cheshire College experienced the famous cuisine of Paris when they visited the city on a vocational trip.


Hospitality and catering students experienced the famous cuisine of Paris.

The group of 12 hospitality and catering students visited the Michelin Star restaurant- Helene Darroze Paris, took part in a cheese tasting session and explored traditional Parisian shops and bistros.

Students also had the chance to visit famous landmarks including the Eiffel Tower and the Champs-Elysees.

Student Chantel Davies, 19, from Ellesmere Port, said: “We visited a Michelin Star Restaurant, which was a great experience.

“I went on the trip to explore new cultures and try new food. It has definitely broadened my knowledge and will help me with my course.”

Louise Crompton, Assistant Manager for Hospitality and Catering at West Cheshire College said: “Most of the students have never been abroad before, so it was a great chance for them to have some independence as well as learn about different cultures.

“The students got lots of new ideas and inspirations for recipes and have set themselves new cooking challenges since they got back to the College.”

Each year the College arranges a series of enrichment activities for hospitality and catering students to help them gain practical skills and broaden their horizons.  Other trips organised for this year include an excursion to Vienna.
