Young chefs with a passion for cooking have the chance to improve their skills and aim to become the next Jamie Oliver or Monica Galetti.
Children aged 11-16 can join the Junior Chef Academy that runs on Saturday mornings at the area’s best kept secret – Rouge Restaurant, New City College, in Chadwell Heath!
Budding cooks will work with experts and professional chefs in the kitchen for eight weeks from January 14th 2023 – with all equipment, uniform and ingredients provided!
The successful Academy runs each year and was launched for 2023 by TV’s The Spanish Chef Omar Allibhoy when he visited Rouge recently to work with New City College Catering students.
He spoke at length about how important college is to encourage young people into hospitality – and was full of praise for the Junior Chef Academy initiative.
Omar owns restaurant chain Tapas Revolution, has appeared on numerous TV shows such as Sunday Brunch, The One Show, This Morning, MasterChef and Saturday Kitchen, and has written two successful cookery books.
