Charlie Crote

“The best parts of the course were the opportunities and experiences I was given and gained, such as cooking in the on-site Beechwood Restaurant, serving real, paying customers. The lecturers took their time to really help and shape each students into a professional, whether their speciality was kitchen or pastry.”

 “My dream is to one day own my own restaurant and GC has helped me work towards this by giving me the opportunity to meet top celebrity chefs and work in high-end kitchens, learning as much as possible.”

 “During my time on the course, I was lucky enough to work for the Roux brothers at Cheltenham Festival, cook alongside Brian Turner and compete in the Nestlé Toque d’Or competition, where I travelled to London and worked in top kitchens, meeting some amazing chefs who led me where I am today.”
