A FURNESS School is hosting a charity restaurant evening to help give pupils a 'professional' kitchen experience.

Ulverston Victoria High School (UVHS) will once again open its doors to to the public this Friday to help raise money for charity through immersing pupils in the art of cooking.

The evening is a joint venture with the school and local charity, the Aroma Catering Foundation.

Founder of Aroma Catering and Food Preparation and Nutrition teacher, Nick Hall, will be welcoming Michelin-starred chef Steven Doherty to the restaurant evening.

Three former UVHS students, who all previously used the services of the Aroma Foundation to secure places with the English Lakes Culinary Academy, will also be in attendance.

The school restaurant, which is now taking bookings, will offer a three- and six-course tasting menu designed by Nick Hall and the students.

This will be the third time that Restaurant UVHS has opened, with the previous two times being a huge success.

The school restaurant event gives students the opportunity to witness and work in an almost ‘professional’ kitchen. Events like this are in place to inspire and motivate students who are thinking of working within the food and hospitality industry.

The Aroma Foundation will soon be opening up applications for any students who require support with applications for catering college, of food apprenticeships. Its website www.aromacatering.co.uk has more information.
