Catering and hospitality students at West Suffolk College got to experience life at an award-winning restaurant when they helped prepare and serve a four-course gala dinner.

The new partnership between the Bury St Edmunds college and Tuddenham Mill, near Newmarket, saw four level one students help chef patron Lee Bye at the event.

In the kitchen, students Kieron Fishwick, from Bury, and Kasey Webb, from Newmarket, worked hard helping prepare the dishes, while Daniel Blackburn, from Diss, and Matthew Riddle, from Sudbury, were busy preparing the front of house.

Chef patron Lee said “It was a game changer welcoming the guys to the restaurant. It’s the first and the most crucial step for us to mentor and nurture these young people of the industry,

“I would recommend all restaurants to open their hearts and doors to these guys.”

Student Kieron said: “I enjoyed the pressurised environment and learnt so much. The Tuddenham team are very welcoming, it was a great learning experience and I definitely want to be a chef.”
