Michael was inspired watching TV cookery shows, and dreamt of being a chef in a high-end restaurant. He flourished at college and, after wowing staff during work experience at The Chesil Rectory in Winchester, he was offered a job as a Commis Chef – realising his dream and starting what promises to be a successful culinary career.

“I chose to go to Eastleigh College for a couple of reasons. Firstly, a friend of mine went there previously and recommend it to me.

After researching the catering department and seeing the extra things that got involved with, I just wanted to be a part of it.
