"During our work experience week, we went to The Royal Highland Show to meet Wendy Barrie. Wendy is a well-known chef. She used her network of chefs to create a Chef showcase to exhibit cookery skills and recipes during the four days of the Highland Show. We got involved in: being ‘front of house’ welcoming the guests; answering questions; being on standby for the chefs during demonstrations; passing out food samples to the guests; and doing the dishes (Ashley’s favourite!).
It has been a great experience and a wonderful opportunity to participate in a proper and formal work environment. Everyone working there has been really nice. It’s not been too tiring as there have been plenty of breaks during the day. We also received free lunch and dinner and we have been fortunate that it was a paid position.
We’re looking forward to next year!"
