Today the catering year 1 class had Morgan come in who works at an Italian restaurant in Sandbach called Raffaele.

He came and visited the year 1's to answer some questions about working in a bar and to do a mocktail demonstration.

The students also got to have their own turn and try the mocktails, they all really enjoyed asking questions about skills for working in a bar and found it very useful.
