Liverpool - Italian job on new cook school

5th March 2010 at 00:00

Two Liverpool schools will be the venue for a new world-class cooking institution designed to create the master chefs of tomorrow.

Students from the city will have the chance to work with some of the finest cooks in Italy, as the new venture will be backed by the world-renowned Alma school in Parma, in the north of the country.

From September, Catholic boys' school Cardinal Heenan and nearby Catholic girls' school Broughton Hall will be the sites for the new cooking and hospitality industry training centre.

The centre, aimed at 14- to 19-year-olds, will eventually move to a new #163;37 million building, creating part of a new sixth form that will be shared by the two schools.

The newly forged partnership will see teaching experts from Alma lend their experience to the design of the new school and its courses.

Students from the city will also take part in exchanges to Parma, meaning Liverpool's teenagers will get the chance to cook alongside some of the world's best chefs.

Liverpool City Council deputy leader Flo Clucas, who was instrumental in setting up the new school, said: "I'm convinced we will create world-leading chefs thanks to students having access to that level of expertise." rv.
