Elite Hotels was celebrating last week when four of their apprentice chefs graduated from the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts.
Each year, Elite Hotels welcomes a student apprentice in to the kitchens at each of their four hotels: Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, East Sussex; Tylney Hall Hotel, Hampshire; The Grand Hotel Eastbourne; and Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa in Bedfordshire. The apprentices are then guided by the Head Chefs to prepare them for achieving their diplomas.
David Drohan (The Grand), Tom Grice (Tylney Hall) and Michael Cruickshank (Ashdown Park) graduated with a credit and merits respectively, while Oliver Miccoli, who was based at Luton Hoo Hotel, graduated with a distinction.
Founded in 1980, the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts is Britain’s leading professional association of head chefs, pastry chefs, restaurant managers and suppliers; uniting like-minded professionals in the pursuit of a stronger future for the hospitality industry.
The graduation ceremony took place at The Langham Hotel in London.
Grame Bateman, Managing Director of Elite Hotels, commented: “We are very proud of all our apprentice chefs and would like to extend our warmest congratulations on their graduation. We are sure they are all destined for bright futures .”
