The Royal Air Force’s newest Reservist Squadron (Sqn), based at RAF St Mawgan near Newquay, worked with the Cornwall Food Foundation to put 28 hopeful trainee chefs through an exciting ‘boot camp’ event, as part of their selection for Fifteen Cornwall at Watergate Bay.
A series of military activities were part of a selection day process for the 16-24 year olds, who were hoping to join the Fifteen Cornwall Apprentice Chef programme at Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Restaurant at Watergate Bay, which is run by the charity the Cornwall Food Foundation.
