The first of the much anticipated themed evenings in the Metro Restaurant was hosted by catering and hospitality students on Thursday 5th November, and what a display of talent it was.
The restaurant, open to the public, was packed with guests and had a lovely buzz to it, as students busily prepared and served the three course menu from the training kitchen.
Customers were served hearty meals such as steak and kidney pie, creamy fish pie and braised chicken leg forestiere, all created lovingly by students at Harrogate College. Food and Beverage students hosted the event, welcoming guests and showing them to their seats before taking their orders and serving their food.
Student coach Anna Cromwell enjoyed the roasted red pepper and tomato soup served with cheese croutons and said:
“It was the best service we’ve had to date in the Metro and we’ve already booked a table for the Christmas banquet in December! I bring my neighbours and we look forward to each and every event.”
Public Service tutor Helen Garnham ordered the spare ribs in barbeque sauce, followed by the creamy fish pie and finally sticky toffee pudding.
“The food was fabulous as always with very warm and welcoming service. I thoroughly enjoyed the night.”
Learning support assistant Jayne Seddon had the homemade salmon fishcakes and steak and kidney pie, also followed by the famous sticky toffee pudding.
“It was a tremendous event in the Metro and I’m already looking forward to seeing the menu for the Christmas banquet. It’s always such a treat!”
A happy guest at the evening told us:
“The sticky toffee pudding is to die for! At only £15 for three courses it’s an absolute bargain. My friends and I have had an extremely enjoyable evening and it’s great to support young people in their studies.”
