Celebrity chef gives students a taste of culinary career

An iconic British chef gave a group of students from Gower College Swansea a sneak peek behind the scenes of his Swansea restaurant along with an insight into his inspiring career.

Marco Pierre White, who last year opened his Steakhouse Bar & Grill at the J-Shed in SA1, met up with four of the College’s Catering and Hospitality students earlier this week.

Mr Pierre White held an informal discussion with the students about his career, the industry and provided invaluable hints and tips of the trade.

With a keen interest in the College’s learning programmes, Marco chatted with the students about the College, the ambitions of the students, and the passion and commitment needed to operate at a high level in the industry.

“At the College, we are constantly looking to give our students the very best practical experiences that we can to ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of their careers,” said Mark Jones, Principal at Gower College Swansea. “Therefore, we are all delighted that some of our Catering and Hospitality students are being given this opportunity to both meet and learn from one of the most well-known and inspirational leaders in this field."
