World famous crockery supplier Wedgwood has donated 600 dinner service pieces to West London College for use at its TASTE restaurant.
The set, which is worth many thousands of pounds, is made up of the Gio Range and will allow the College to plate food in the restaurant to a standard that is seen at the finest restaurants.
Denise Charles, head of hospitality at West London College said: “We’re thrilled and hugely grateful to Wedgwood. There’s no way our budget would ever stretch to this and to be able to serve food on these beautiful plates and dishes will mean the world to our students and impress our guests.”
Catherine Farinha, director of The Chefs’ Forum who helped with the sponsorship said: “This is a magnificent gift. It means that students will be able to see their food as it would appear in a top restaurant or hotel. This is so valuable for them to gain this sort of experience.”
The set includes 100 pieces of each and makes a complete dinner service: dinner plates, salad plates, side plates, soup bowls, dessert bowls and dessert plates.
The first event that will see the posh bone china in use at TASTE will be at a special St Patrick’s Night Dinner taking place this Thursday (16 March 2023).
