OC shares his skills

We were delighted to welcome back OC Lewis Twydle for the LEAP programme at Clayesmore.
Lewis, a professional private chef, returned to give the Year 12 BTEC hospitality pupils a masterclass in cookery skills.

He created wild mushroom arancini with truffle mayonnaise, duck bon bon with hoisin mayonnaise and pickled baby cucumber and filled cheese gougeres. He also showed them how to cure salmon in preparation for their Asian unit of work which starts in September and culminates with a banquet hosted by the students. Other delights were a whipped white chocolate ganache cheesecake with elderflower infused strawberries and mango puree and a chocolate caramel mousse (pate a bomb).

Wow, what a feast!  Thanks Lewis for a brilliant session.
