Leading politician Yvette Cooper joined local Labour party members for a formal dinner at Cambridge Regional College’s student-run Park restaurant – giving the students the chance to perform to their highest level.
The low-key visit gave students the opportunity to show off their cooking and front-of-house skills to one of the country’s best-known politicians – receiving high praise for their work.
Ms Cooper, a former Shadow Foreign Secretary, enjoyed a main course of chargrilled neck of lamb and slow-cooked breast of lamb accompanied by rosemary potatoes before chatting to the trainee chefs and hospitality students who served up her meal.
Diners were full of praise for the students’ cooking, describing the food as ‘wonderful’ and ‘truly professional’.
CRC Head Chef David Ellams said the students had enjoyed cooking for their well-known guest.
“It was a great experience for the students to cook for such a high-profile visitor and they were delighted to receive such excellent feedback from all the guests,” he said.
