Gareth and his team were also so impressed with the quality of the lamb served on the evening from Coleg Cambria Llysfasi that they are now planning a visit to the farm.

Deputy Director of Curriculum for Catering and Hospitality, Andy Woods said: “This opportunity to collaborate is a fantastic testament to Gareth’s love of the industry and wanting to help the next generation of chefs.

“On the back of the event we are looking to further develop the relationship between Coleg Cambria and Ynyshir restaurant with staff and student work placements and possible future opportunities for further collaborations.”

This is the first of many collaborations with employers across the sector, in the new year Cambria will host pop up restaurants with Wild Garlic, The Machine House, The Chefs Table and Wrexham Football Club.
