Exose Grant Cooks up a Storm to Celebrate Bradford College’s £32m Redevelopment

The Grove Restaurant at Bradford College hosted a special dinner with over 40 invited VIP’s to celebrate Bradford College’s Garden Mills refurbishment project. The evening was a feather in the cap for the college restaurant and our own Exose Grant was on hand to supply the menu.

The event showed guests the exciting plans in place set to transform Bradford College.

In attendance was Lorraine O’Donnell (CEO of Bradford Council) and Naz Shah (Bradford West MP) as well as representatives from Couch Perry Wilkes, Bond Bryan Architects and JCT600 among others.

College students were able to get vital experience on the night and work on a big event that would normally go to a hotel or large restaurant facility.

Exose, a former MasterChef: The Professionals finalist, explained: “The Grove Restaurant was the perfect venue to celebrate the special evening and the students really upped their game. Together we produced an outstanding evening of food to really put Bradford College on the map. It was great to have such important local dignitaries in the restaurant and the students got vital experience.”

Here’s what they made on the night:

Wye Valley Asparagus, Slow Cooked Egg, Toasted Sourdough, Crispy Parma Ham, Onion & Thyme Puree, Beer Pickled Onions and Beer Pickle Gel

Chive and Tandoori Spiced Lamb Rump, Sweet Potato Fondant, Sweet Potato Puree, Spinach Yoghurt, Sauteed Spinach, Lamb Sauce, Garlic & Coriander Flatbread and Mint Yoghurt

Vanilla Cheesecake, Strawberry Compote, Basil Syrup and Crumble

The dinner was followed by a question-and-answer session with Exose and service throughout the evening was provided by Level 2 Catering and Hospitality students.
