Jack Stein has opened the newly-developed kitchens at Wadebridge School.
The well-known local chef, son of Rick Stein, collaborated with Truro and Penwith College’s hospitality co-ordinator Tony Duce to put on a special demo for students.
The collaboration allows Wadebridge School to not only promote the hands-on skills required by the industry, but also the opportunities that can come with careers in hospitality.
Stein said: “I wish I had a facility like this when I was in secondary school. Hospitality is the growth industry in Cornwall. We normally see students come through Truro and Penwith College, so it’s great to see students learn before that stage – this is the school my kids will be coming to, its great they have a brand-new kitchen facility and looks fantastic.”
Duce added: “The hospitality department at Truro and Penwith College is very proud to work with schools in the area to help develop the hospitality superstars of tomorrow.”
