23rd October 2018

Two former cookery students from City of Wolverhampton College are delighting diners with their culinary talents at regular pop-up gourmet evenings.

Jack Lewis and Ben Rogers, both aged 24, who studied for diplomas in hospitality and professional cookery at the college’s Metro One campus, host their popular eight-course fine dining evenings at the Lime Tree coffee shop in Tettenhall.

The next event, on Friday October 26, is sold out but those lucky enough to have booked a table will feast on tomato and basil boccocini, chicken thighs marinated in jerk spices, handmade pork and apple sausages, lobster linguini, and flash-fried beef skirt with smoked new potatoes, followed by damson iced gin, raspberry and rhubarb trifle, and Banks’s beer cake served with homemade barley ice cream.

Jack, who also runs his own business producing luxury hand-made chocolates, added: “Since completing my qualifications at the college my career has gone from strength to strength and I’m really grateful to the tutors for everything they taught me and for encouraging me to follow my dream and launch my own catering business.”

Nicky Doherty, professional cookery tutor at the college, said: “It’s great that Jack and Ben are both using the skills they learnt on their courses in their regular jobs in the catering industry and that they are also showcasing their talents at the gourmet nights.”
