Three disabled students will each create a food dish in a bid to become the Cirencester Le Beaujolais restaurant Star Cook of the year at a fund-raising dinner for Gloucestershire’s National Star College, on June 27.

The three students, using skills that will enable them to lead independent lives despite their disabilities, will each be assigned a course to create (starter, main or dessert) and their food will be judged by Le Beaujolais chef Eric Lepine.

The students will discover which course each is to create with a lucky dip. They will cook their dish before the event and Eric Lepine will taste the courses and announce the winner during the event.

The evening, marking Star Day, will begin with a welcome reception for guests who will each pay £16-95 for their dinner. A proportion of each dinner booking will go to the college along with the funds raised by a collection, raffle and mini auction, for which prizes are urgently being sought.

The evening will be compered by Star College student Abbey Joe, the first of seven students who will be invited to spend a number of weeks at Le Beaujolais learning all about the restaurant business and the jobs they could seek in the industry.

Bookings for the event can be arranged via Kiean Glynn by calling: 01285 644440
