News from the Grand Kitchens!

Announcement of Success...

Posted 13th August 2012

I am delighted to report the news that Oliver Smith has passed his 3 year Specialised Chef's Apprenticeship with Distinction.

This Apprenticeship is run in partnership with Bournemouth and Poole College and the Academy of Culinary Arts.

Oli is the first apprentice at the Grand to have achieved a Grade of Distinction.  In October Oliver will be attending a graduation event at the highly acclaimed Westbury Hotel in London to receive his certificate from the Academy of Culinary Arts.

You will no doubt remember that recently Oli entered his first ever competition and came an impressive 2nd in the Young MasterChef of the Year!

I am sure you will all join me in congratulating him on his well deserved success and I feel this is only the beginning of Olivers winning ways!

A photo will follow once the graduation ceremony has taken place......
