College caters for Film Festival

Using fresh local ingredients, students enrolled on the Professional Cookery Diploma (Patisserie and Confectionery) VRQ 3 course at Cornwall College Camborne baked and prepared mini scones, topping them with a selection of sweet and savoury toppings including smoked salmon and cream cheese, game pate, goats cheese and poached pear and fresh strawberries with clotted cream.
 
Two of the College’s hospitality students then served the canapés to over 100 guests and VIPs attending the launch event, held in Newquay’s impressive Lighthouse Cinema to mark the official start of the festival.
 
Kurtis Baines, 17 from Newquay and in his first year of studying the Food & Beverage Service Certificate Level 1, said: “I really enjoyed working at the event, and I’ve never done anything like this before.”
 
Fellow student Jamie Cass, also 17 and from Newquay, added: “I’ve worked as a waiter before, but never at an event like this. It’s been a good experience, and I’d definitely like to do it again in the future if we get a chance.”
 
Mark Devonshire, Course Manager at Cornwall College Camborne, said: “All the students have worked really hard both in producing the canapés and then serving them at such a prestigious event, especially when it’s the first time they’ve worked on anything like this. We had some really positive feedback from the event’s organisers, so the students should be really proud of what they’ve achieved.”
 
Dave Linnell, Principal of Cornwall College, said: “This was a great opportunity for our students to get involved and gain some valuable experience, whilst utilising the practical skills they have learned with us so far. I’m extremely proud of the way Cornwall College has been represented at what is always a successful event, and would like to thank all the staff and students involved for their efforts.”
