St. Patrick's Event Gonna Be Great Craic To Be Sure

A group of college students are busy with the final plans and preparations for an exciting St. Patrick’s event that will be held at their college restaurant next week.

The group of five catering students at East Durham College, in Peterlee, are organising the special St. Patrick’s Day themed event as part of their course. And with a fully booked restaurant, serving 50 covers, next Thursday is sure to be a very busy day and night.

The level 3 catering students, who are all studying on a City & Guilds Professional Cookery course, are very exciting about putting on the event which will take place at the College’s lovely bistro-style restaurant Scene1.

Agata Materkowska, 23, who’s originally from Poland, but now lives in Horden, said: “Working with such a great head chef [Joe Keenan] teacher has helped me learn so much.

“I love cooking and working with the other students to put on these type of events. I’m sure it will be a very hectic service on the night, but I’m really looking forward to it.”

Catering lecturer Jean Taylor added: “The event will provide the students with some highly valuable experience in the planning, organisation and delivering a themed event.

“They have all worked incredibly hard and I’m sure the event will be a great success.”

Saint Patrick's Day or the Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated every year on March 17, the anniversary of the Saint’s death.

The restaurant is fully book for the event next Thursday but Scene1 is still taking bookings for a special Chinese Buffet event being held on Wed 27th and Thurs 28th March. To reserve a table please call Scene1 on 0191 518 8302.

Scene1 is a fantastic bistro-style eatery with a fully-licensed bar. Food is freshly prepared on the day using high quality fresh ingredients.
