Scott 'swans' in to student kitchen

Tuesday, 09 Mar 2010

Scott Goss, head chef at one of the UK’s top restaurants, helped trainee cooks at MidKent College’s Maidstone Campus recreate a menu fit for icon of the culinary world Gordon Ramsay.

Mr Goss, who heads the kitchen at Michelin-listed The Swan in West Malling, wanted to give students a taste of world-class cooking. “We’re re-doing the dishes I created for Gordon Ramsay on The F Word,” said Mr Goss, whose brasserie earned a place among 18 restaurants selected from 10,000 nominations to appear on the programme. “I’m contacting a range of local colleges because I’m keen to give Kent’s most promising young chefs a chance to experience life in a top-quality kitchen,” he continued.

"MidKent College was first on my list, as one of my own chefs was on a course here just last year. The students have been fantastic, really enthusiastic,” he said. “I’m very, very impressed.”

Mr Goss helped the students serve up a gourmet feast of blue stilton dumpling, loin of venison and Christmas pudding soufflé to more than 30 guests at the college’s high-quality, restaurant, The Apprentice. “I hope tonight’s diners will see just how gifted these youngsters are,” said Scott, “They’ve done brilliantly with some very technical dishes.”

The Apprentice restaurant is open to diners for weekday lunches and until 9pm every Thursday evening during college term times. Guests can enjoy high-quality cuisine at affordable prices in intimate surroundings. Call 01622 625873 for bookings and enquiries.
