Hugh Baird College and L20 Hotel School student, Averyll Green, said:-
"The whole experience has been amazing. To have a tour of the Anfield facilities
and then to work with their teams and receive 1 to 1 advice from them has
given me an invaluable insight into the sporting catering industry at 1 of the
biggest football clubs in the world.
The live dining event at the restaurant was quite intense, but it was really
rewarding. Working under such an experienced and respected chef as Chris
Marshall was great, I learnt so much from him and his team."
Commenting on the live dining experiences, Paul Cuttill, General Manager of
Hospitality, Tourism and Events at LFC, said:- "We are delighted to be
teaming up with local catering colleges to offer students the opportunity to
learn more about the evolution of the stadium catering business while helping to
