South Tyneside Restaurant Week is offering residents the opportunity to sample dishes from the master chefs of the future.

Catering students at South Tyneside College have created a contemporary menu to demonstrate their skills and experience as part of this year’s event.

Bistro 150, a commercial restaurant within the college’s main South Shields campus, will be serving up the students’ one-off menu.

These include starters such as black pudding hash brown, a choice of smoked haddock, escalope of pork or roasted butternut squash for main course and sweet treats from sticky toffee pudding to lemon posset.

Alison Maynard, principal of South Tyneside College’s Professional and Vocational College, said: “South Tyneside Restaurant Week is a great way to promote the best the Borough has to offer in food and eating out.

“It’s an initiative that gives talented chefs and eateries the opportunity to show diners their excellent dishes, and all at a fantastic price, and staff and students at South Tyneside College are excited to be taking part.”

South Tyneside College is one of scores of eateries taking part in South Tyneside Restaurant Week 2016, which will run from Saturday, October 1, to Sunday, October 8.

The event, created by South Tyneside Council to help boost tourism, features more than 20 restaurants and cafes in Jarrow, Boldon, Cleadon and South Shields, each with their own special menus, giving visitors and local residents a huge selection of offers.

Restaurants who want to sign up for South Tyneside Restaurant Week should call South Tyneside Council on 0191 424 7971.
