Goodwood Estate | Press Article 16/04/24

Chichester High School students were given a demonstration in world class hospitality and catering at Goodwood to help facilitate learning for their Vocational Award study course.

The visit which was organised by the Goodwood Educational Trust (GET) included a behind the scenes workshop with Goodwood’s Michelin-starred executive chef Darron Bunn and Farmer, Butcher, Chef restaurant manager Iris Stoltenberg, who previously worked for one of Britain’s most respected chefs Raymond Blanc.

The group of Year 10 students toured the kitchen to see first-hand how the chefs actually prepare for lunch service and sampled some of the food served at Farmer, Butcher, Chef including steak tartare, pork liver parfait, glazed brisket and pork belly.

Goodwood executive chef Darron Bunn said: “The students were so blown away with what we do here at Goodwood. You know they were very engaged because amazingly nobody bothered with their phone during their visit. The group were really interested in all the amazing organic home-grown ingredients that we use at Farmer, Butcher, Chef but they were definitely most interested in sampling some of the delicious food. Several students were so impressed with what they tried that told us they are going to ask their parents to bring them back for dinner.”

The Year 10 students who are all studying for a Vocational Award in Hospitality and Catering were given a tour of Goodwood’s Home Farm to visit the pigs, sheep and cattle.  While at the farm the students saw how Goodwood produces its own milk on the Estate and were given the opportunity to bottle-feed milk to the new calves.

Established by the 10th Duke of Richmond in 1976 as a charity, the Goodwood Education Trust provides educational visits and workshops for groups of all ages from pre-school to post-graduates to facilitate learning outside the classroom, using the rich variety of sites and businesses found on the Estate.

Alongside the award-winning meat, Goodwood Home Farm also produces 21,000 litres of milk a week, used to make three cheeses (Charlton Cheddar, Molecomb Blue and Levin Down).
