Executive Head Chef gives our Professional Cookery students a taste of the culinary industry

Our students recently cooked up a night of unforgettable dining at our 1853 restaurant working with George Warwick Executive Head Chef at The Reach Piccadilly. 

Our Level 2 Professional Cookery students recently supported Executive Head Chef George Warwick in cooking a three-course banquet-style menu at City Campus Manchester’s 1853 restaurant. 

As a former student of The Manchester College, George was delighted to impart some industry wisdom from over a decade of culinary experience to our students.
Watch the video above to hear how George's visit gave our students invaluable industry experience and get a glimpse of some of the mouth-watering dishes that George and our students created!

George Warwick:
I'm George Warwick, I’m the Executive Chef of The Reach Piccadilly. I visited The Manchester College tonight to work with the students. We're doing a three-course banquet on a restaurant-style menu and a restaurant-style service.

My name’s Hamza. I do Level Two Professional Cookery. He's going to help us learn about the industry.

George Warwick:
The knowledge the next generation needs, I'm here to, like, try
and support as much as I can. The students worked really well. It's a pleasure to come in and work with them because they're always so respectful. They actually listen. They actually care about what they’re doing and they like to learn.

It's been really good working with one of his sous chefs called Callum. We’ve been doing some Manchester tarts. 

George Warwick:
This has just been a really great night. All the students should be really proud of themselves. I actually studied at The Manchester College. It's great to be back and play a part in the next generation coming through.
