Trainee chefs from Sunderland College, based at the City Bistro, managed a stall at the Park Lane Christmas Market.
They tempted the public’s taste buds with their freshly made breads, pies, jams and chutneys.
It allowed the students to experience a real working market stall, which required planning, organisation, product development.
Rob Stewart, Curriculum Manager for Hospitality, Tourism and Engagement at Sunderland College, said:
“It was a great project to be involved with. It gave our students an additional element to consider and further brought the real world into their learning experience.”
Sunderland College hosted the Young Seafood Chef of the Year national competition at City Bistro, students from the college won a place in the final.
