A group of culinary arts students from Dundee and Angus College have been chosen to help produce the dinner at the prestigious event.

The second year students, from the Arbroath campus, will be creating a starter for over 200 people at the Angus Ambassador Awards being held tonight (Friday) at the Carnoustie Golf Hotel.

The awards aim to recognise people, businesses and organisations who have helped to promote the local area both nationally and internationally.

There are awards in a variety of different categories.

And chef lecturer Gerry McMeneny was delighted the students were going to be involved at such a high profile event.

He said: “It’s a great honour to be asked to do this for the fourth year running and reflects the students hard work to make sure the food is top notch.

“The dish is on a smokie theme and is designed to reflect the superb quality of local ingredients on offer in the region.”

Although all students will be involved in total, five student chefs will be there on the night to ‘plate up’ the food ready to be served on the night.
