This month has seen a brilliant partnership between the Tayberry Restaurant in Broughty Ferry and Yolanda who is a S3/4 student at Carnoustie High School in Angus.
Yolanda is passionate about becoming a chef and when an opportunity to learn from award winning Chef Proprietor, Adam Newth came up it was a perfect match. This partnership is happening for the duration of the 17/18 academic year and Carnoustie High School have taken a very proactive approach in enabling timetable changes to accommodate the placement so Yolanda can continue her academic journey and pursue this amazing opportunity. This was achieved by great collaborative working between Tayberry DYW D&A and departmental and senior managers within the high school.
Adam Newth opened the Tayberry in November 2015 and he is committed to helping young people in the industry. Adam could see the passion Yolanda has for becoming a chef and will teach her all the skills and knowledge required for this, from mise en place to full service.
Adam himself attended high school in Arbroath and began his career as a chef by working part time in a local kitchen. He continued his training at College at the Arbroath campus before graduating, and then sought every opportunity to work with as many excellent chefs as possible. When asked how he has achieved so much Adam says it’ all down to “Hard Graft”. Adam holds many titles such as Young Chef of the Year and Young Seafood Chef of the Year and is keen to help other young people start on their journey to be a chef. It is safe to say Yolanda will gain an amazing amount of varied experience and we wish her well with her journey.
“Adam is passionate about discovering new talent and developing it for the future and is always keen to hear from aspiring Chefs and Front of House staff with an interest in a career in hospitality.” Tayberry restaurant team
