Want to learn how to prepare and cook fish? Billingsgate Market staff are running a Summer Seafood School for families with children aged 7 to 13 on mornings and afternoons in August. But they do all kinds of other events and training too...I feel a SuffolkFoodie outing coming on...
I was invited to the West Suffolk College this week to speak to the 1st year BTEC students in the morning and the Introduction to Catering students in the afternoon. Which meant lunch at Zest Restaurant and a tour of the kitchens in the middle. It never ceases to amaze me of the high standards and professionalism achieved by both the students and the lecturers in the Catering and Hospitalty Faculty. Bury definitely has got talent!
Wow! I just ate Plaice Florentine at Zest; the training restaurant attached to West Suffolk College. It was absolutely perfect. They have a sweet trolley too, and today it featured a Malted Chocolate Tart, Strawberry Bavarois, Rose scented Creme Brulee and a hot option of Sticky Toffee Pudding. You can't buy the ingredients for the £9.50 charged for 3 courses. Book a table and see for yourself. They also do a fabulous new takeaway menu.
