FIRST: We need some help !
We placed a successful bid with The Army Covenant some time ago, to put on 4 ‘Food Academy’s’. These are early intervention / youth Diversion schemes. We draw the young people in, with an intensive 6 week cooking course and then support them, as they learn that they can achieve much more than they believed possible. We ask all our partner agencies and schools in the area, to nominate / refer 12 students, who are underperforming, suffer from low self-esteem, ADHD, high performing Autism, part of families suffering from Domestic Abuse, young carers, victims of bullying, anything where those young people need and would benefit from some additional support. We have a brilliant team of volunteers who attend each of the 6 sessions, supporting, encouraging and helping them, sometimes working one to one with them, until they feel able to take the next step on their own.
We made a YouTube clip made with the assistance of the Chief Constable which sets it out very clearly:
Each Course finishes with a four course Banquet cooked by the students, for local invited guests, which include, the High Sherriff, the Chief Constable, the PCC, Deputy and Assistant Chief Constables, the local Area Commander, the Mayor and Mayoress, local councillors, heads of all the youth agencies and of course, the students’ families.
NOW TO THE REQUEST FOR HELP !
The next Banquet, will be held on Saturday 16th March, in the prestigious top floor restaurant, at The Windsor Race Course. The Race Course have fully supported this initiative from the beginning, making their dining and cooking facilities, available to us. Unfortunately - their top chefs are working elsewhere, on the night of the Banquet - so we need the help of some volunteer chefs out there, to work with the students, to produce the four course Banquet !
The meal consists of possible a soup - not yet decided. A roasted chicken dish, with fancy vegetables and choux swans !
This involves prepping the ingredients for 80 guests on Friday evening 15th March between 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. and then coming in on Saturday at 2 p.m. to start cooking dinner.
Friday, it is more willing hands on deck. Saturday, is more challenging. The kitchens at the Race Course are on separate floors. Our Course Chef, Graham Alston, provided by The Windsor Lions, will manage the main course, but we need chefs to over-see the start and desert.
Our volunteers will be working with and supporting the students. They are extremely competent and could possibly easily manage, as they have already completed 3 banquets, but we want to make sure everything runs like clockwork, to support the students, their families and make this an experience they will never forget.
Have you worked in a professional kitchen, with the relevant catering equipment and can assist at the Banquet ? Can you come in on the Friday and help with the prep ?
