The Social Diner with Shay Cooper

The Social Diner

with Shay Cooper

Shay is Executive chef at one of London's finest establishments- The Dining Room at the Goring Hotel (where Kate Middleton spent her last night before becoming the Duchess of Cambridge). Shay gained his first Michelin Star at The Bingham before repeating the feat at the Goring. 

Shay reinvents British food with a sense of fun and magic. Expect an elegant and captivating four course menu.

The Social Diner does what is says on the tin so expect to meet new people, eat Michelin Star food and see Shay at work with our apprentices in our open kitchen at Brigade.

Tickets for the event are available to purchase online here

NVQ Graduation Celebration

NVQ Graduation Celebration

On Tuesday 9th May we held a graduation ceremony for 19 apprentices from Cohorts 5 to 10 who have successfully completed their NVQ training and are now qualified professional chefs! We were grateful to be able to hold the event at the stunning Searcys Pavilion Road, where graduates and their guests enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea before the ceremony.

The event marked the end of a journey for the apprentices which started with Freshlife and ended with gaining a Level 2 NVQ qualification, culinary skills and friends for life.

We wish the apprentices all the best for their future careers in the kitchen, and beyond!

 

 

Put A Fiver To Work!

Put A Fiver To Work!

Put A Fiver To Work!

For many, the barriers to finding a job are simple.

They don't know where to look, how to apply or how to present their skills. Beyond Food's Chef Founder, Simon Boyle, has used his experience of working with 1000s of vulnerable people to publish a work book, How to Find A Job And Keep It, to support people to take their first steps into employment. The book makes daunting tasks manageable, including CV wirting, budgeting and interview preparation.

Put your fiver to work here!

At the end of June we'll be distributing all the books through partner organisations, including the National Literacy Trust, Thames Reach Employment Academy and local schools through the PwC Foundation.

You can follow the campaign by following us on Twitter @Beyond_Food and Facebook @beyondfoodcic

Once you've bought your book, share your top tip for finding a job and keeping it, using the hashtag #PutAFiverToWork.
