Students Participate in Europe's Premier Food Festival


Blackburn College students were given the opportunity to participate in Obsession - one of Europe's premier gastronomic events, hosted by AA Hotel of the Year Northcote.

The star studded event took place over 17 nights and saw renowned international chefs fly in from around the world to deliver unforgettable dining experiences to patrons.

The College was represented by 14 Catering and Hospitality students, who worked alongside celebrity chefs to ensure spectacular food and service for hundreds of guests.

Students received invaluable work experience, working alongside distinguished chefs to get taste of the high-flying culinary world.

Paul Sharples, Industry Links Manager at Blackburn College said:

When Northcote offered our students the opportunity to participate in Obsession, we knew we couldn't afford to say no. Experiences such as these are invaluable to our students and highly beneficial for their employability moving forward.

Nigel Haworth, Chef Patron of Northcote added:

It was great to see the partnership with Blackburn College strengthen through Obsession. Students of all levels came to participate and were engaged, focused and positive to have around. The relationship we have with the College continues to go from strength to strength.
