Nottingham College’s degree-level hospitality students are running a restaurant takeover with a distinctly Italian theme at the College’s Adams Restaurant. The takeover will take place on Thursday 19 March, and the students will be using their hospitality knowledge and experience to supervise the front of house and take care of the customers on the night.
The Foundation Degree students have created a unique five-course tasting menu in consultation with the College’s Head Chef. It’s priced at £22.95 per person and diners will be able to enjoy minestrone alla Milanese, which is the Lombardy region’s own distinctive take on minestrone soup, followed by crispy fried cod with cauliflower ‘affogato’ and lemon aioli.
Also on the menu is braciole, an Italian favourite consisting of slow-cooked beef stuffed with mozzarella and simmered in a rich tomato sauce.
To finish, the students will serve up a palate cleanser of blood orange sorbet and a sorrel panna cotta with compressed strawberries and shortbread crumb.
Diners will also be treated to a live acoustic set by two Performing Arts students.
The evening has been planned by the students over the last three months, and their Lecturer Chris Stamp has mentored them on everything from advertising and branding, to operations and costings.
Tables are available for seating from 6pm to 7.30pm. To book call 0115 910 4510.
