The Deli’ is now open for business after its official reopening. City College Plymouth’s popular student-run deli bistro has undergone refurbishment thanks to over £58,000 of funding from The Savoy Educational Trust. At the launch event held on Tuesday, long-standing customer, David Owen, who has been frequenting the restaurant for over 40 years cut the ceremonial ribbon.

David said: “I am honoured to have been asked to officially open the newly refurbished Deli. I love coming here. I always receive top service and the food is delicious. The Deli looks fantastic and I can’t wait to see the students using the new equipment. I know this space will be crucial in helping aspiring chefs refine their skills and I look forward to tasting their creations.”

‘The Deli’ has a new serving counter, bar and an electric induction range, as well as improved tables, chairs and crockery. The funding grant will also enable the College’s popular Junior Chef’s Academy to run for another year, offering young people between the ages of 14 and 16 the chance to get a flavour of cookery in a nine-week after school masterclass.

One of the old Deli counters has been donated to Devon and Cornwall Food Action, a charity that redistributes surplus food that would otherwise go to landfill, to other charities and organisations who, in turn, help vulnerable communities.

Karen Dorow, the College’s Director of Business, Hospitality, Care and Lifestyle, said: “This funding ensures the delivery of our training programmes in a realistic professional working environment which is in line with modern industry standards; thus raising the opportunities and aspirations of both our students and Junior Chefs. We are so pleased that David could be here to officially mark the opening of ‘The Deli’. As a long-standing loyal customer we wanted to show our appreciation for his continued support. It is our hope this newly refurbished space will help to encourage young people to consider a career in catering.”
