Westminster Kingsway College launches celebratory book ‘In a Class of its Own'

Westminster Kingsway College has launched a new book celebrating its past, present and future culinary stars and the teaching of hospitality and culinary arts, as well as featuring recipes taken from the college's restaurants.

The College's School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts can boast a heritage that dates back to the great Auguste Escoffier and the book, ‘In a Class of its Own', celebrates its legacy, with contributions from current staff and former students, including Jamie Oliver, Paul Gayler and Ainsley Harriott, alongside a series of beautifully illustrated recipes taken from the college's archive.

The illustrated book has been written by Gary Hunter, head of hospitality and culinary arts at Westminster Kingsway College together with Adam Kay, a food industry writer. Hunter has been working at Westminster Kingsway College for over 15 years and has been a head chef, pastry chef and development chef during his time working in the hospitality industry including Michelin-starred establishments.

"I was attracted to the college initially as the reputation and history of this establishment is second to none in the hospitality industry. I have a passion for learning and for stretching the boundaries of the culinary arts and each of our students wants to explore the relationship between science, technique and art in professional cookery. Our hospitality students have such enthusiasm for real hospitality - how can you not be inspired by that? said Hunter.

"The college never rests on its laurels. It adapts to the changing educational and industry environment responsively and responsibly. The teaching team at Westminster Kingsway College is the best in the UK," adds Hunter.
