Masterchef winner, Simon Wood joins forces with The Manchester College for a virtual Hospitality Industry Taster Event!

The Manchester College is to stage a virtual hospitality industry taster event on Microsoft Teams while social distancing restrictions are still in place. Prospective students will be treated to a pre-recorded cookery demo from Simon, as well as an interactive Chefs’ Quiz and a Q&A session with Simon Wood, college lecturers and students.
Simon is set to host a session in the College’s ‘Couch to College’ event on Wednesday (15) July, (1-2.30pm). Participants will enjoy a film of Simon’s Steak and Onion Yorkshire Pudding Wrap and enjoy an interactive Q&A session with him, which will follow.
Potential students are invited to join college lecturers as they showcase the college.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for the prospective students to learn all about courses offered at the college in professional cookery, front of house and technical patisserie and confectionary, as well as curriculum enrichment and employer engagement opportunities offered to students at the college.
Simon said
“I am delighted to have been asked to participate in this virtual event. It just shows haw the college is adapting to the ‘new normal’, while continuing to promote its fantastic facilities and courses offered at the college. I look forward to welcoming students back into my restaurant once restrictions are lifted and, in the meantime, I am so grateful to be able to help inspire budding young chefs and hospitality professionals to join our fantastic industry.”
