Lakes College visit

On Wednesday 19th January, our butchery sales manager, John Cowen was warmly welcomed to Lakes College, Lillyhall, Workington.

He met with both Level 1 and Level 2 catering students and their tutors to give a brief overview of Pioneer Foods; our history, philosophy and service. Also, he talked about the cuts of meat we produce in our butchery by hand using highly skilled staff.

John then set the students a hands-on challenge – he asked them to produce their own recipe chicken stir fry and burgers. They needed to have the wow factor as he then judged the best recipe!

Hospitality and Catering Lecturer at the college, Emma Nicholl said: “The day was very informative and enjoyable, and we have had great feedback from the learners, who were especially enthused by the cooking competition for the ‘Best Burger’ and ‘Chicken stir-fry’!

A very big thank you for the fantastic session which you delivered to our catering students at Lakes College on Wednesday!”
