CELEBRATE BURNS NIGHT AT COLLEGE RESTAURANT
Scottish fayre will be on the menu at two Burns Night suppers at City of Wolverhampton College’s Academy training restaurant later this month.
Students studying for hospitality and catering qualifications at the college’s Metro One campus in the city centre will be dishing up the tasty four-course feasts on Tuesday 20 and Thursday 22 January.
Diners will start their meal with an appetiser of Cullen skink – a traditional Scottish haddock and potato soup – followed by a choice of scallops with crisply bacon and haggis or Arbroath smokie and cheddar cheese tartlet.
They will then tuck in to either Scottish lamb chump served with butternut squash, kale and winter chanterelle mushrooms, haggis served with neeps and tatties, or crab and mackerel fish cakes served on a bed of parsnip puree.
And if guests have any room left for dessert they can round off their meal with oatmeal shortbread served with whisky chocolate, marinated cherries and whisky caramel, whisky truffles, or raspberry cranachan – a traditional Scottish trifle.
The four-course meal would usually cost £14 per head – but as the college is offering a 30% discount on all meals until February 13, diners can enjoy the feast for just £9.80 per person.
The restaurant will be open from 6.15pm to 9pm, with last orders at 7pm. To book a table call 01902 821431.
