A group of talented youngsters have been learning the art of cooking in the Junior Chefs Academy at Accrington and Rossendale College’s state-of-the-art Roots Restaurant.
The six week course, which gives 11 to 16 year olds the opportunity to cook in a professional environment under the supervision of industry experts is a fun and action packed way of teaching children the principles of cookery.
Not only do learners get to cook in state-of-the-art facilities, but they also get to eat fantastic tasting food and gain knowledge about nutrition, hygiene, health and safety. At the end of the course all students will receive a menu booklet and certificate.
Commercial Chef at Roots Restaurant Jack O’Sullivan, who teaches the course commented,
“The Junior Chefs Academy is a fun and practical way of teaching children who have a keen interest in cookery the principles of cooking. The children on the course are having a great time and it’s a pleasure to watch them developing so quickly.”
Assisting the Chef Jack is Level 1 Professional Cookery student Daniel Johnson, 16 from Helmshore. Daniel added, “I’m really enjoying working with Chef Jack to develop the skills of these young upcoming chefs. The children are all very polite and eager to learn.”
