Bath College is to host a Charity Gala Dinner in their Shrubbery Restaurant on Thursday 6th June, in aid of Dorothy House Hospice Care, with the help of a number of top local chefs.
A four course tasting menu will be served, with each course prepared by a different high-profile, local chef with the assistance of the College’s catering students.
Bath College is hosting the Charity Gala Dinner as part of their annual programme of collaborative fine dining events featuring top, local chefs working alongside staff and students, offering their inspiration and expertise.
The line-up of four well-known local chefs will be similar to a round of Professional Masterchef, as the chefs will present a brief commentary on the food they have prepared.
Each course of the dinner will be created by a different chef including: Michael Nizzero, Executive Chef from The Bath Priory who has worked under Michel and Alain Roux at the three Michelin starred Waterside Inn; David Campbell, Head Chef at the 3AA rosette award winning Dower House Restaurant at the Royal Crescent Hotel; Tony Casey, Head Chef and Proprietor from the Bunch of Grapes in Bradford on Avon and Damien Wager, a self-taught patisserie chef, who runs his own pastry academy, Edible Art Patisserie.
It will be a college-wide event, as the dinner will be served by front-of-house by students from the Hospitality course, and table decorations will be designed and created by the Floristry students and staff.
There will also be live music from local guitarist JD and a full bar.
Phillippa Watson, Philanthropy Manager at Dorothy House commented: “This Charity Gala Dinner is an exciting new event for Bath to raise funds for vital patient care at the hospice.
“We believe this could become an annual ‘hot ticket’ for the Bath calendar bringing together the professional experience of top local chefs and the creative ideas of up and coming Bath College catering students.
“We’re indebted to the Bath College team for organising this fabulous event.”
Damien Wager founder of Edible Art Patisserie added: “I am honoured to be involved in this event and look forward to working alongside not only the best local chefs Bath has to offer, but the culinary students who aspire to be as successful as them one day.”
Jayne Withers, Head of Hospitality and Catering at Bath College said: “Our students are really excited and proud to be working on this event. As caterers these are the occasions that inspire and motivate.
“For our students it’s a wonderful opportunity to learn and show what they can do. We are delighted to be associated with Dorothy House and support the amazing work that they undertake in our community.”
