James Defreitas Professional Cookery

"Studying Professional Cookery at Cornwall College has been great, I have enjoyed meeting new friends and gaining experience in the catering industry. The facilities are really good and I have learnt to be much more confident in myself and what I am doing. Next year I plan to move onton a higher level course at the College and continue my learning."

Mark Devonshire Chef Lecturer

After having spent over a decade working for Rick Stein at the Seafood Restaurant in Padstow, Mark took on the role as senior tutor at the Padstow Seafood School, further developing his teaching and management skills. He took these to the next level when he set up a cookery school in Worcester on a working farm at Eckington Manor; however, after working away for a time, the pull of Cornwall became too much and Mark returned to join the chef lecturing team at Cornwall College.
