West Suffolk College wins food and hospitality competition second time in a row
A team from West Suffolk College in Bury St Edmunds demonstrated their passion for food and hospitality perfectly, when their menu and service beat other college teams from across the region to win the 2019 ‘A passion to Inspire’ competition.
The college is the only to have won the competition two years in a row.
Winners Alfred Bloomfield, Emily Gleed and Dan Blackburn will now be invited to the Skills for Chefs 2019 event where they will meet culinary legends Daniel Clifford and Clare Smyth as well as winning a host of other experiences and treats.
Mike Mulvihill, Director of Service Industries at the college, said: “It was a great privilege to host and once again take part in ‘A passion to inspire’. All teams did so well and all involved should be proud. I am so proud of Alfred, Emily and Dan; they have embraced our college character strengths showing ambition, resilience, confidence and self-control the whole way through.”
The college is also offering a new course, Construction and Conservation in the Built Environment, based at the Milburn campus, the first of its kind in the country.
