The daughter of a friend has been studying a BTEC in hospitality for the last two years at The City of Bristol College. I was asked if I would like to attend one of their themed evenings at their restaurant which was on this occasion Italian.
Half of the students are behind the scenes in the kitchen with one of them in charge of cooking. The other half are front of house with my friend's daughter in charge. They had created a delicious tasting cocktail to start us off. Unfortunately as I was driving so a taster sip was all I dared try.
We were presented with a very promising menu along with some rosemary or garlic bread to start us off.
The starters all looked and tasted delicious. I was a bit more organised by the main course and had my phone at the ready. I chose the lamb
The other two options looked equally good.
I regretted again having my car when we were presented with a shot of limoncello. This was another first for me but again had to be passed to my neighbour after a sip or two. We then had a taster of two desserts.
What a lovely evening being served scrumptious food by delightful students all at a reasonable price. Not to mention the company of some wonderful friends. Anything to criticise? Perhaps the lack of support to the Potato farmer and I have one regret which is that I did not discover these evenings until nearly the end of term!
