MEET THE TEAM

 

Taste Restaurant is a family.  Both the Front of House team and the Chef Lecturers work closely together to ensure that menus meet curriculum requirements.  Balancing the teaching timetable with the commercial activities is a fine art, so the team has to constantly evaluate the two.
