Angus College hospitality students took extra special care last week when they produced a selection of entrées.

The delicacy was served as part of The Princess Royal’s visit to the area on Friday.

The students were assigned the task of catering for 160 who were in attendance at the Forfar Royal British Legion as part of Princess Anne’s visit to Angus.

The result of weeks of preparation was a delicious assortment of canapés including smoked salmon and cream cheese pinwheels, cheddar and basil tarts, melon and parma ham skewers and as a nod to local heritage - Arbroath Smokie and tomato roulade.

To follow, the students also prepared a selection of sweet treats including meringue and profiteroles.

Hospitality curriculum manager Neil Jack said: “This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to gain experience in catering for a large event as well having the honour of serving the Princess Royal.

“The canapés which the students prepared reflect local favourites and I hope they were enjoyed by all in attendance.”
