Paul O’Neill, who is head chef at Hattusa Berwick hotel in Bristol, taught the students how to prepare and serve a venison saddle and smoked duck dish.
An event also took place at Bristol Audi and canapés were both prepared and served by students and there were also a number of cookery demonstrations.
The Chefs’ Forum was launched at the college back in April and gives students the opportunity to work with industry experts and learn a number of new skills.
Georgia White, who is studying for a diploma in professional cookery, said: “I feel the Chefs’ Forum Academy is benefiting me as I am getting the opportunity to work with high-class chefs.
“It is helping me expand my CV and get work experience in the chefs’ restaurants.”
