Year 12 GCSE Hospitality Function: A Taste of Italy in Dunluce

The Year 12 GCSE Hospitality class worked as a team to produce and serve an Italian themed meal to a group of 10 people which included staff and members of the Board of Governors.  Each pupil had a specific role, either in the kitchen or front of house in the restaurant.  The restaurant team were responsible for producing invitations, menus, comment cards and place cards as well as setting up and decorating a classroom as an Italian Restaurant.  The kitchen team were responsible for preparing and cooking the food and presenting it ready for service.  All who attended enjoyed the experience and praised the pupils for the high standard of food and the efficient and professional service. 


"This was a truly delightful experience and a pleasure to be included on your guest list.  Congratulations to all involved and a sincere thank you.  The attention to detail and the style with which the food was served was most professional" Chairperson, Board of Governors:

Some comments from other guests:

"I was really impressed with the overall ambience and set up of the restaurant.  The food was delicious.  Presentation, service and overall friendliness of the staff was excellent."
"It was a lovely event.  All pupils should be very proud of themselves.  I enjoyed every course, the waitresses were very professional and the head waiter very attentive without being intrusive.  Well done"
"Thank you so much for a lovely lunch.  The food was amazing and presented beautifully.  The atmosphere, venue and service were first class.  Well done!"
"A superb effort from all involved"
