Kelly juggled family life to attend Hugh Baird College for two years and completed the Level 2 and Level 3 Professional Cookery and Food Service study programmes.
I came to Hugh Baird College with no cooking experience and just wanted to learn how to make healthy meals for my young children. Once I started, i realised that I had found my calling and became more confident in myself and my ability in the kitchen."
Working with celebrity guest chefs like Nigel Haworth and Kenny Atkinson made me realise I could do this as a career. When I completed my Level 3, I applied for a job at Liverpool Football Club as a Commis Chef and I got it! I haven’t looked back and I am now Chef de Partie and love my job.”
The support I got from the tutors and staff was very helpful and made me more confident in my own ability.”
My highlights were work experience at Michelin-star restaurants and working with top industry chefs. I also really thrived on producing my own dishes to put on the L20 Restaurant menu.”
Work hard and take all advice on board, learn more about your subject and write everything down. It is worth it in the end.”
