Gower College Becomes the Third Chefs’ Forum Academy in Wales

The Chefs’ Forum Academy is growing with Gower College in Swansea the latest to join the initiative which enables catering colleges to access the content, chefs and framework of The Chefs’ Forum.

“We are very excited to be joining The Chefs’ Forum and look forward to all the benefits the Academy will bring,” said  Mark Clement, Curriculum Leader, Gower College.

Chefs’ Forum Director Catherine Farinha said: “I am thrilled to bits to welcome Gower to our growing Academy family. We have a fantastic programme of events lined up that I truly believe will benefit the students and the college as a whole.

“With our move into content production with The Chefs’ Knowledge and an enhanced list of chefs who are excited to get into the colleges to teach – the Academy is a growing force in chef education.

“We are doing so much work in Wales at the moment with both colleges and Welsh produce and ingredients. We recently held a Welsh Seafood lunch at L’Oscar restaurant in London, where 70 chefs came to taste Welsh seafood provided by the Welsh Seafood Cluster.

Last Tuesday saw our Sustainability Lunch be held at The Coast restaurant, Saundersfoot, where we showcased Welsh wine and produce to top Welsh chefs who attended.

It’s incredible how effective these events are at promoting excellence to our chef friends throughout the country.

“Following on from that we’re working on more events and campaigns with Game Meat Wales and will be staging  Hospitality Industry Taster Days at all of our Welsh colleges over the next few months.”
