A family from Waterlooville learnt some top culinary skills as part of a pub chain’s campaign to get families eating together.

The Hartman family have been appointed as one of 12 family tasting teams for the Table Table chain and were invited to spend the day at the Whitbread Skills Academy to learn from Whitbread chefs.

Jason, Claire, Katie and Lucie Hartman were able to view how the Whitbread chefs produce the dishes for their menus.

They also tried their hand at making some of their favourite dishes with TV star and Table Table brand ambassador Claire Sweeney.

Jennifer Kilham, marketing manager for Table Table, said: ‘Our family tasting teams give families across the UK the chance to see how Table Table restaurants pride themselves on creating menus that bring the whole family back to the dinner table. It was great to see all members of the family getting involved and learning some key skills to take home with them.’

The campaign was designed to highlight the importance of families dining together and gave families the chance to sample and review the restaurants’ menus.
