Students to serve up Polish fayre

Authentic Polish cuisine will be available at West Nottinghamshire College’s BAY6 Centre and Coffee Bar next week.

The centre, in Woodhouse Road, Mansfield, is laying on a ‘Taste of Poland’ Menu from Monday 8 to Friday 12 June.

It consists of summer borscht (a cold beetroot soup served with a roll) priced at £1.50, pork shashlik (marinated cubes of pork, skewered with bacon and vegetables, served with salad) priced £3, glazed nut rolls at 65p and blueberry cheesecake costing £1.

The Polish menu completes a series of nationally-themed meals laid on at the centre, which provides a practical training and working environment for students with learning difficulties or disabilities.

Students have previously served up St Patrick’s Day, Easter around the World, British Week and Taste of Italy meals after helping catering staff design the menus and prepare the food.

Food will be available from 10am to 2pm, with tea, coffee, cakes and sandwiches also served during these times.

Di Fennell, BAY6 Programme Area Leader, said:  “The students have really enjoyed designing the menus, helping source the produce and serving the meals to customers.  It’s been invaluable in developing their confidence, communication skills and customer interaction.

“Now they’re looking forward to serving up another great-tasting menu before the academic year ends.”

People can just turn up although parties of eight or more are advised to book a table on 01623 413027.

The BAY6 centre is open to the public for hot and cold refreshments.  It also sells hand-made gifts produced by the students.
