Workstations are fully equipped with knives and pans, and 2 students each share an oven, gas hob, induction hob and sink. The kitchen has a walk-in fridge for storage of produce. The room opens out onto a theory and dining room which also has it's own terrace patio.
The Fusion kitchen has capacity for ten students and is on the first floor. With it's high church ceiling and windows it feels open and bright.
Movable granite workstations provide a flexible working space in front of the chef demonstration area, with ovens and hobs arranged around the outside. The chef demo station is equipped with multiple 4k video screens.
This kitchen is where our Patisserie Diploma and courses run from as the large granite workstations are ideal for working with chocolate, or kneading bread.
Each of our training kitchens have their own dedicated Dining Room directly off them. These are multi-purpose rooms which can be used for chef demos, or theory sessions.
When you arrive for your course in the morning you will start off in the dining room with tea/coffee where the chef tutor will talk through the course content for the day.
