CLYDEBANK school pupils got a taste of some professional cooking last week as part of International Chefs Day.
The town’s West College Scotland campus at Queens Quay welcomed local youngsters from Clydebank High, Kilpatrick School in Dalmuir and St Peter the Apostle High School, with the aim of highlighting the importance of healthy cooking and eating.
Workshops involved included mocktail, smoothie and soup making and they welcomed industry experts such as chef Paul Smith, owner of the Inn at Kippen, who made fresh granola and raspberry compote.
Clydebank campus curriculum and quality leader for hospitality, Hugh McCluskey, said, “It was a big step for some of the school pupils to come into college and participate in workshops, but after some encouragement and support, I could see that they all enjoyed their time with us.
“The staff did an amazing job of organising such a successful event.”
The events, which ran in partnership with Developing the Young Workforce, saw 21 schools and over 150 pupils attend events at each of the campuses in Clydebank, Paisley and Greenock.
