Name: Martin Farrow
Looking for work in: Catering
College for a
patisserie and confectionery
NVQ Level 3.
WHEN I complete my course this
summer I will have a good grounding
in a broad range of catering
As part of the course I go on
work experience to Solberge Hall,
in Northallerton, where I have been
working as a pastry chef. That has
been perfect for taking the things
that I have learnt at college into the
real world. I also worked for a while
as a kitchen assistant at Osmotherley
Youth Hostel and that was
also great for building up my experience.
I am not afraid of hard work. You
cannot afford to be in this industry.
The TV chefs might make it look
glamorous, and it may be for the
likes of Jamie Oliver or Gordon
Ramsay, but at the level I am at it’s
about hard work and dedication.
My ultimate aim is to be in
charge of my own restaurant or
bakery. But I understand that in
this industry you have to develop
your skills and gain a reputation.
Getting a job in a local restaurant
or hotel after I leave college in July
would be a great start. I have a car,
so I am pretty flexible.
