A regular on television shows including Great British Menu, two Michelin star Indian chef Atul Kochhar visited Guildford College to give a unique cookery demonstration.

During his visit he shared his love of his native Indian cuisine with a select audience by cooking dishes including Chicken Tandoori, Meen Moilee (seabass) and Tawa Prawns.

“I have always been passionate about education and training as this is a tough and constantly evolving industry,” says Atul. “My mother was a teacher and my father a caterer. I first began teaching on my days off when I worked at the Tamarind Restaurant and try to get involved now in opportunities such as that provided today whenever I can”.

While Atul shared his cookery stories, students from the college prepared a range of Indian-inspired dishes for lunch.

Open to the public and staffed by students, The Parkroom restaurant at Guildford College is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday lunchtimes and Wednesday and Thursday evenings during term time.
