FE Catering

“The tutors always talk about what it’s like to work in catering, like telling you the right etiquette in a kitchen, and how to present food so that it looks really special. I’m in college four days a week, and at the weekends I work at a restaurant in Westminster. It’s a great experience and I’m learning a lot.”
