Learners from Hospitality and Catering hosted a fantastic 'Food Art Dinner' last week at The Restaurant SW4, the college's training restaurant which is open to the public. Adam Byatt from Trinity Restaurant in Clapham, who has recently won a Michelin star, helped prepare the learners for an evening of fantastic culinary delights. The Restaurant SW4 were very pleased to have Adam as an ambassador chef for the evening.
"Trinity is a privately-owned neighbourhood restaurant situated in the heart of Clapham Old Town. When we started out, way back in 2006, our self-set mission was to serve great food. It had to be seasonal, inspirational and, above all, delicious. Ten years later and our priorities have not changed one single bit. While we are the proud holders of one Michelin Star and numerous accolades, our motivation is as it has always been, to continuously provide our guests with a memorable gastronomic experience".
The menu included a Trinity signature dish, big eye carpaccio, avocado, sesame and lime, with the help of chef lecturers Andrew Whitson and Toby Walsh. The main course was venison fillet, celeriac and preserved plum and juniper. The evening ended with warm pear frangipane tart and praline ice cream.
Level 2 Front of House learners also helped bring the event together and were led by lecturer Jeannette Bryson. The Craft Guild of Chefs attended and fed back: "We have thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the meal was really wonderful".
Other guests commented:
"The food was exquisitely prepared by the highly talented and passionate kitchen staff commencing with a delicious tuna carpaccio and all courses superbly presented. The experience of dining in a Michelin star restaurant at a fraction of the cost."
"A fabulous evening with vibrant colours for both the palate and the eyes. A dinner which brought together a great mix of people from various walks of life to share the abundance of flavours in a friendly atmosphere."
