Last night the Balmer Lawn Hotel, hosted the Institute of Hospitality Southern Branch, Student of the Year Awards. It was a perfect warm sunny May evening at the beautiful Blamer Lawn Hotel, set in the gorgeous New Forest.
Congratulations to the winners: Lucas Kelly (Front of House Student of the Year), Lauren Kates (Pastry Chef Student of the Year), Oliver Dillon (Chef Student of the Year), Chris Moat (Apprentice Student of the Year) and Mila Ilic (Management Student of the Year). What a talented bunch.
It is such a postive evening with enthusiatic students showcasing their skills.
The celebration dinner made by the professional team at the Balmer Lawn, was enjoyed by all. The dessert was gluten and dairy-free and included a dairy-free chocolate sorbet, made with Mortimer Chocolate.
We love the chocolate flavour, but then we are biased as it uses our wonderful Ecuador Cocoa Mass. Created by chef, Johnny Melican. His passion for good, healthy food has driven him to create an ice cream using a unique process only used by Johnny. And after many years of development you too can now taste his fabulous vegan ice-cream. Also comes in Vanilla and Honeycomb flavours. @johnnysdairyfreeicecream
