Students recently visited York to investigate how highly anticipated events such as York Food Festival are organised.
The Year 1 International Travel and Tourism management, Year 2 Travel and Tourism, and Level 2 Catering students visited the historic city to investigate attractions and experience its vibrant culture.
The trip gave Catering students the opportunity to observe cooking demos and try food samples, along with attending a chocolatier demo and sampling local produce. All of the students met with Michelin star and award-winning chef, Tommy Banks from the Great British Menu, along with other chefs at his restaurant, The Black Swan at Oldstead.
Keith Curtis, Lecturer 2 (Catering & Hospitality), said: “The trip to York was a worthwhile visit, with lots for students to see and taste, great free live food demonstrations, and an inspirational encounter with Michelin-starred Chef, Tommy Banks.”
The Travel students are currently using tasks completed and their experience to help with their Marketing unit and the catering students are hoping to visit some of the contacts made on the day.
