It was French Gastro night in the Metro Restaurant on Thursday 25 February, with the Catering and Hospitality students serving authentic French cuisine to full house of guests.
The tables were laid appropriately with red, white and blue and the students were adorned in French berets and waistcoats to compliment the evening.
The dishes were beautifully presented and professionally served, with both front of house and chefs working extremely well as a team to get the meals out efficiently and quickly.
Starters included a scrumptious medley of pan seared scallops, with crisp black pudding, smoked bacon and a vibrant pea puree, topped with dressed leaves.
For mains, confit of chicken with a cassoulet of haricot beans, smoked sausage, tomato, garlic and herbs.
And for pudding, a traditional and tangy Tarte au Citron with a generous helping of a sharp raspberry sorbet balanced on top.
“The evening was fantastic; the students got into the spirit of French night and were good at telling us about the dishes.” – Josie Guinness, Metro guest.
The next themed evening will take place on Thursday 17 March and will be a Thai and Chinese banquet. To book, please call 01423 878300 or email Metro@Harrogate.ac.uk
