4-course menu created by award-winning chef Hywel Jones at Bath College, Thursday 16 November

On Thursday 16 November, Bath College is partnering with the five-star Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa for an evening of foodie delights, offering diners a unique chance to sample dishes created by Lucknam Park’s award-winning chef Hywel Jones.

Hywel is stepping out of his eponymously-named, Michelin-starred kitchen to work with hospitality and catering students at Bath College who, under his guidance, will prepare a delicious four-course menu. The evening will be supported by Chris Kidd, Restaurant Manager at Lucknam Park, who will keep a close eye on front of house.

Bath College is excited to be working with Lucknam Park as part of the Bath Hotel and Restaurant School, set up to link students at the college with leaders in the south west hospitality and catering industry. A number of students have progressed to work at the hotel and spa after finishing their course, including Bath College alumni Stephen Cunningham, Natalie Knight, Leon Parsons and Connor Gale. “I see the students at Bath College as possible future employees and we need to make sure they are inspired to work for Lucknam Park when they graduate,” says Chris Kidd. “Also, it’s important for me to put something back into the industry. I always hear how there is a skills shortage in hospitality, and I believe we’re partly responsible for improving this and developing young people.” “Working with Hywel and Chris is always a thrill for the students,” says Ryan Hanson, Deputy Head for Hospitality and Catering at Bath College. “It’s a great opportunity to be involved at the sharp end with top professionals and feel the pressure that comes with carrying a Michelin star. The experience will also represent a chance for them to be inspired, and to demonstrate their mettle, skills and abilities. Who knows, they too may end up working at Lucknam Park!”

So, piggies: this is your chance to grab a unique opportunity to sample a taste of Hywel’s Michelin-starred, stylish ways with locally sourced produce and meet tomorrow’s kitchen superstars today… for the unbeatable price of just £50pp. For further information and, of course, to make that all-important booking, email shrubberyrestaurant@bathcollege.ac.uk or call 01225 328502 today.
