YALE College’s Rendezvous restaurant teamed up with Coedpoeth Scouts to lay on a slap-up charity meal.
Working as special trainees to Mark Parsons, the catering and retail manager at the college, 1st Coedpoeth Scout Group, aged six to 18, got involved with kitchen and front of house tasks to prepare and deliver a delicious meal for their families and friends who had bought tickets to raise money for the group.
Mouth-watering chicken liver parfait was served with Cumberland sauce followed by shoulder of lamb braised in red wine and redcurrant with sticky toffee pudding and butterscotch sauce.
“I really enjoyed working with the group,” said Mark. “It’s great to develop young people’s skills and broaden their appreciation for food.”
Cub Scout leader Chris Maddocks said: “The kids love cooking and doing this in Scouting encourages them to try food they may not otherwise have tried or even thought they disliked.
“With all the publicity about childhood obesity, unhealthy eating and the effects on health this is a really positive and fun experience for them to take part in.”
All the money raised will go towards a new hut for the group.
