Employees at the Bedruthan Hotel & Spa in Mawgan Porth have recently taken part in NfET's tailored food training course 'The Competitive Edge - Confident Kitchen Services'.
The staff at Wild Cafe which is homed within the Bedruthan Hotel enjoyed a food training event designed around a City & Guilds diploma and delivered by industry experts. The training covered topics such as implementing the principles of kitchen safety, operating and cleaning kitchen equipment, getting the most out of resources as well as completing kitchen setup, close down and documentation processes. The training also included insight into cooking healthier foods and understanding special diets.
As part of the course, staff participated in practical kitchen workshops to help develop their skills within NfET's purpose built training kitchen. These practical workshops give chefs the opportunity to be creative and experiment in an unfamiliar environment.
Gill Blundell, Human Resources Manager at Red Hotels Ltd said, "Here at Bedruthan Hotel and Scarlet, we make every effort to ensure our teams have an enjoyable experience working with us. An important part of this is our commitment to developing people, promoting from within the company and giving them the chance of a real career in hospitality - not just a job. We have worked closely with NfET for many years and they understand us and deliver great training which is tailored to meet our requirements."
Darren Millgate, Executive Chef at the Bedruthan Hotel added, "As well as giving us new skills and qualifications these practical workshops help to develop morale and the team within the Wild Cafe kitchen. Our recent Environmental Health visit highlighted the good practise of all the team having undertaken the Healthier Foods & Special Diets qualification, showing best practise within the kitchen."
