A budding chef from Accrington and Rossendale College’s Hospitality & Catering Department delivered a mouth-watering menu to a busy restaurant when he hosted his very own ‘Brought to You By’ evening in the College’s state-of-the-art Roots Restaurant.


Level 3 Professional Cookery student Callum Burrill, 20 from Haslingden, got the opportunity to show off the skills he had learnt by hosting his very own Game Around the World evening which he’d planned, created and prepared himself.

The evening, which was kindly sponsored and supplied by professional gundog competitor and captain of the England Gundog team Nathan Laffy, featured a rich taste of game with classics such as venison, boar and partridge all making up the tasty menu.

Callum, who works as a Commis Chef at Mitton Hall alongside his studies commented, “It was great to serve up good quality food to all the guests and having them pass on compliments was extremely satisfying.”

Anthony Muldowney, Chef Lecturer at Accrington and Rossendale College added, “Our Level 3 students are really showing their skills with these theme evenings. First we had Rachel Pinder host her Knives & Fawkes evening to a sell out restaurant and now we have had Callum do so too. I’m extremely proud of the way Callum has performed tonight and I can’t praise him enough. Taking charge of a busy kitchen and restaurant is extremely hard, but Callum took this in his stride and demonstrated fantastic leadership skills alongside the culinary skills we already knew he had. Watch this space, Callum will go a long way in the Catering industry. ”

Our next Brought to You By evening is Morroccan Nights on the 19th January 2017, but if this doesn’t tickle your taste buds we have the fifth in the series, Robbie Burns Night on the 26th January 2017 with familiar tastes north of the border.
