Celebrity Chef and Business Professor, Franck Pontais, recently spent time with learners demonstrating some of the dishes from his best-selling and highly rated book, Terrines & Verrines.
The Grimsby Institute’s Business Professors scheme invites regional, national and international businesses to join the Group to ensure that education becomes responsive to employer needs, with students gaining the experience and employability skills that industry requires from its future workforce.
The scheme was launched in September 2013, where Franck gave a keynote speech, saying: “It is so important that young people gain their qualifications in their chosen industry but we must not forget that they also need to gain hands on learning experience.
I am very proud to be a Business Professor. It is for us to give these students the opportunities to undertake work experience and give them access to our time as their mentors.
Franck once again returned to the Grimsby Institute where he worked with the learners, this time demonstrating some of the dishes from his popular book filled with delicious terrines, a small ‘loaf’ made from a variety of ingredients, and verrines, an appetizer served in a small glass.
