Students raise the steaks
17 January 2019
Last week Heart of Worcestershire College's (HoW College) Level 1 and 2 Hospitality and Catering students experienced a butchery masterclass as they were given a meaty demonstration from local Bromsgrove butchers, Midlands Foods.
How College's Chef Lecturer, Andy Minchin said:
"The day was a great success and was a great opportunity to see the catering students working together from the two campuses".
During this event the students from both Redditch and Worcester had a crackling time learning how to butcher a whole pig and lamb over a two hour presentation. The students also worked together to dry cure the meat for bacon, which will be used on a black pudding tortellini, scallop and bacon with mustard sauce dish.
Senior butcher, Barry Fothergill commented:
"Encouraging young chefs to have a greater appreciation for good meat and butchery as a whole is an important thing".
HoW College prides itself on being able to provide its students with educational demonstrations like these to develop their knowledge.
