Food presentation skills can be an extremely difficult concept to succeed at for GCSE and A Level Food students who are blind or visually impaired. NCW has recently been working with top Michelin Starred Chef, Patrick McDonald. Pat is currently involved with up and coming young chefs at Green Cow Kitchens in Whitbourne, Worcestershire who came along to NCW to work with the GCSE group to help improve their presentation of food skills. With a few top tips and some easy wins, they showed the group how easy it is to transform an ordinary looking dish into a feast for eyes. The taste buds were also well catered for!
