Claire is currently a Level 3 Professional Chef Diploma student. She will be cooking her menu inspired by her 3 week work placement in Italy.
“In October, I was one of the lucky students who was chosen for a 3 week work placement as part of the Erasmus scheme to travel to Forli in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy.
During this time I worked at the Ferri & Menta restaurant where I was taught how to prepare traditional and authentic recipes using the finest local and fresh ingredients.
This was a fantastic learning opportunity for me that has given me an exciting new perspective and repertoire, to work with which I will take forward with me during my career.
I have taken a selection of my favourite inspirational and typical dishes of this rich culinary region and have featured them on my menu for you… I hope you will enjoy eating them as much as I enjoyed making them!
