Lakefield Hospitality College introduces three New Patrons for 2017

We are delighted to introduce three new patrons, who are highly valued in the Hospitality Industry to support Lakefield Hospitality College. As the industry is such a demanding one, it is vital that our students have positive role models and support from the experts in the field.

On the 15th of March, we had our annual patron’s dinner, our special way of saying a huge thank you for all the support they have given us throughout the year. The guests arrived to canapes and champagne and listen to a presentation given by Lisa Clapham, Director of Lakefield about the progress, developments and our goals for the coming year. This event was a great opportunity to welcome the new patrons to the Lakefield team. They proceeded to discuss the presentation over dinner.

After a day of intense preparation, Omero Gallucci, patron and development chef from the Craft Guild of Chefs with Doris Morales our Head chef together with her team, treated them to an exquisite five-course meal including a chocolate dessert designed by Omero Galluci and executed by Basi Sira, Level 3 Patisserie student.  The front of house team, led by April Poblete, food service manager showcased their skills and looked after the service, working together with the back of house as a single team. Ana Greguric, Level 3 Professional Cookery student, designed the petit fours and one of the starters that she will be using for the finals of the Cook South Africa Competition in April.

We were grateful to Ian Parsons, CCS Business Director who provided the glasses that we used for one of our desserts. We were honoured to have our Patrons for the evening as they are a big part of Lakefield. Frankie Strinati, PR and Schools Liaison gave an after-dinner speech to thank them for their support over the past years and to praised the staff and students for all their hard work.
