City College joins Flavour Fest as Education Partner
Flavour Fest returns to Plymouth city centre from Friday 26 May until Sunday 28 May for the 19th year.
The three day event is one of the most popular in the South West’s food calendar and has continually grown in popularity with footfall figures regularly reaching 100,000 across the three-day event.
With over 100 food traders you will be able to sample lots of delicious food and drink, and treat yourself to some of the region’s best produce to take home, with everything from brownies and baked goods, to cheese, gins and liqueurs on offer.
Visitors can look forward to an exciting programme of chef demonstrations – details to be announced closer to the event, and brand new traders including Bar Nova, Sandford Orchards, Sukhino Smoothies, The Meatball Shack & Phat Patties.
City College Plymouth has joined Flavour Fest as the event’s education partner, which gives the College’s catering students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at this exciting event.
The students, under the guidance of their lecturers, will be running the popular PL1 Street Eats stall, serving up delicious street food inspired by cuisines from around the world. They will also be backstage helping the various chefs prepare for their demonstrations.
Larry Moody, City College Plymouth’s Curriculum Lead and Development Officer, said: “The College very excited to be supporting Flavour Fest once again. This really is a tremendous event and our students value the opportunity to support one of the region’s biggest food and drink events.
As a College, we feel it is vital for our students’ development to give them a rich mixture of learning opportunities, and I can’t think of a better way of doing this than the chance to work with some of the region’s most experienced chefs at this high-profile event.”
Steve Hughes, Chief Executive of Plymouth City Centre Company said:
“Plymouth City Centre Company is delighted to announce City College Plymouth as our Flavour Fest Education Partner this year and thank them for their ongoing support.
