Fingers under! A student learns about knife work and Asian cuisine from Chef Cyrus Todiwala.

Doncaster College and University Centre, a new member of the Institute’s Education Membership Scheme (EMS), recently welcomed celebrity chef, author, and restaurant owner Cyrus Todiwala OBE DL FIH to the Waterfront Restaurant.

Cyrus was joined by his wife Pervin and Doncaster’s Catering and Hospitality students for the preparation of his signature menu, which was then served to lucky guests at the Benefits for Business event at the College.

Level 3 Catering and Hospitality student Shila Gale from Intake was on hand to help prepare the main course and, as a result, has gained an opportunity to visit Chef Cyrus’ restaurant. “It was a nice experience to prepare a different type of food, bring new ingredients to the College and learn about traditional Asian cooking,” said Shila – who along with her fellow students – agrees that experiences like the Todiwalas’ visit are a great way for students to gain valuable industry contacts.
