Our Clarendon centre has state-of-the-art kitchens where you will be able to hone your skills to perfection.

You will also be able to prepare your own menus and maybe even see them in action at the Adams Restaurant.

You can expect to put your skills into practice by supervising service in our award-winning Adams Restaurant, serving lunches and five course taster menus to paying customers. You’ll go on work placements and meet with professional and renowned chefs to learn from the best. There’s lots of hands-on cooking time, plus time spent researching and learning food theory.
