TOP Herefordshire businesses have been lending a hand to up and coming stars of the ktichen at a college.

Herefordshire and Ludlow College catering students were cooking up a stormas they made bread, venison burgers, sushi and more under the guiding hand of local employers.

Through a series of demos, workshops and lectures, the employers were passing on their knowledge and expertise as part of enrichment week – a time for students to step away from their usual curriculum to take part in various alternative activities and experiences to enhance their training.


First up, local mixologist Joe Williams from Hereford Carriages guided the students in making five classic cocktails.

A butchery masterclass was next on the menu, with Tim Hanks of the award-winning Hank’s Meat and Game in Ross-on-Wye showing how to break down a side of venison and make burgers and sausages.

Later that day, award-winning artisan baker Peter Cook, from the also award-winning Peter Cook’s Bread in Bishop's Frome, near Bromyard, demonstrated shaping and proving techniques.


Finally, En Sushi/BBQ business owner and head chef Pampi Khamluean taught students how to make Hosomaki, Uramaki, and Nigiri and encouraged them to come up with their own creations.

Finally, students raised a glass to Adam Kirkbride and Emma Giles from The Secret Bottle Shop who guided them through the process of making, serving and tasting the wines on the college's Cider Orchard restaurant menu.
