Hospitality and Catering students at Eastleigh College are excited to announce the launch of their Christmas Menu at the in-house Red Carpet restaurant. For the past term students have been learning the knowledge and practising the skills required to serve delicious festive food.
The Christmas Menu runs from Tuesday 3rd December until Thursday 19th December. A three course lunch and four course dinner is offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and is very reasonably priced at £13.50 and £19.50 respectively. All the food is cooked and served by the students under supervision from professional chefs. The mouth-watering menu includes chestnut, roasted butternut squash and Bramley apple soup; braised lamb shank with vegetables and a rosemary and cranberry jus and savoury cheesecake with Christmas chutney.
Megan Scott-Munden, Level 3 Professional Catering student, said "I'm excited about working in a busy kitchen; it will be good experience for the industry".
The Red Carpet restaurant provides an ideal environment for the students to develop their skills by offering a professional restaurant service to the public. They have the opportunity to practice their customer service skills, wait tables and work behind the licensed bar, whilst the catering students create a wide range of dishes to an extremely high standard.
Spaces are filling fast so book your Christmas table now on telephone 023 8091 1053.

We are delighted to have been recognised by The Times Education Awards for the support we provide to students who need to re-sit their GCSEs after leaving school. The excellent results our students achieved last summer include more than twice the national average gaining a maths GCSE, testament to the dedicated team of teachers who use innovative approaches and techniques to inspire our learners.
Young chefs and hospitality students from Eastleigh College were joined by other competitors from training providers across the south to take part in the southern regional heat of an established national competition. The Major Series 2020, which is organised by Major International in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs, saw 50 competitors take over Eastleigh College's three professional kitchens and East Avenue restaurant and work their culinary majic across ten different classes from 'afternoon tea' to 'street food'.
