Celebrity chef to cook lunch at The Phoenix

Lewisham College's Flynn writes:

Brian Turner CBE, one of Britain’s most renowned chefs, is visiting Lewisham College to cook with Hospitality and Catering students for lunch for the public at The Phoenix restaurant on 25 April.

Brian, one of Britain’s most successful and well-known chefs, won a Michelin star with Richard Shepherd at The Capital Hotel and has been a successful restaurateur for many years. But he is also well-known for his dedication to training new chefs, especially his Schools Future Chef Competition, and Brian has won an Honorary Apprenticeship Award for his contribution to the development of Apprenticeships.

Brian will be meeting with Hospitality and Catering students from Lewisham College before and after the lunch to give advice and offer his unparalleled knowledge as a successful chef to students looking to pursue gastronomy as a career.

"I'm pleased Brian Turner CBE is coming to Lewisham College. Brian is one of Britain's very finest chefs and our young chefs are excited to meet and learn from him. I am looking forward to Brian working with our students to create a wonderful dining experience at The Phoenix restaurant," said Hospitality and Catering Head Michael Neal.

Top Chef is a restaurant. As its name implies, it has a top chef.

Have had lunch at the Phoenix several times now and a memorable End of Term taster meal.

Would have warmly reccomended it even then, for ambition and good value.

Hi Stephen. Yes, The Phoenix restaurant is at our Lewisham Way campus in the Breakspears building.

Also, our Catering and Hospitality department regularly go to local markets (including Brockley Market) for their food.

Why is "local" automatically judged to be a good thing?
