Michelin-starred chef Galton Blackiston reveals fine-dining secrets to Fenland students
STUDENTS from Wisbech Grammar School given secrets of running a fine-dining restaurant from Michelin-starred chef.
Galton Blackiston met the Year 10 pupils at his Michelin-starred restaurant at Morston Hall Country House Hotel near Blakeney as part of their food short course, run in conjunction with the world famous Leiths School of Food and Wine.
A familiar face on Saturday Kitchen Live and the Great British Menu, Mr Blackiston spoke for 45 minutes on the ingredients needed in a fine-dining restaurant.
Richard Bainbridge, head chef at the north Norfolk coast restaurant, talked to the students about the provenance of the ingredients, 80 per cent of which are from within a 40 mile radius.
Alison Sloan, head of food and nutrition, said: 'It was a really useful opportunity for the students to see first-hand what they are actually studying.'
