HOSPITALITY students at Chichester College served up a treat for chef Marco Pierre White when he paid them a visit this week.
The world-famous chef enjoyed tomato soup with fresh cream and crusty bread followed by beef bourguignon and a lemon soufflé in the college’s Goodwood restaurant.
Earlier, Marco gave an inspirational talk about his career, shared some words of advice and spent time signing students’ course books.
His first jobs were low-paid and basic but he set his sights high and became the youngest ever chef to be awarded three Michelin stars.
He said: ‘Discipline is essential, staying focused. Never give up on your dreams. It’s all about belief in yourself. You may not realise it yet – this is the best industry in the world because it’s not a job, it’s a way of life.’
Mr White described the students as being ‘very polite, courteous and patient’ and said the college’s lecturers were doing a good job.
He said: ‘It has been a very nice day and it has been a privilege to be allowed to come and visit.
