Level 2 Craft Catering and Level 3 Professional Cookery students at the college worked in the Brookfield Hotel’s commercial restaurant.

They were tasked with preparing, cooking and serving a three course ‘Great British Menu’.

Marcus Chilstone, head chef at the Brookfield Hotel, said: ‘It’s great to work with colleges, such as South Downs College, as it gives students a good chance to gain some hands-on experience in a real catering environment. They’ve all been great and have adapted well.’
