Northcote Leisure Group launches apprentice restaurant series

Northcote Leisure Group is launching an apprentice restaurant series at its Cafe Northcote site in Blackburn. The company’s up-and-coming talent will showcase their skills during six pop-up evenings spread over three months. From the chefs to the front-of-house team, the project is entirely apprentice-led, offering the insight and experience of running a kitchen and restaurant by organising, managing and delivering the series of events themselves. Co-owner Nigel Haworth said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for the apprentices to show their enterprise and talents. They are controlling everything and will focus on the complexities of making the food, service and ambience special. The cooking, marketing and service is all down to them and I’m sure they’re going to put everything into the nights to make them a great experience for the diners and themselves.” Each evening will consist of a bespoke five-course menu plus coffee with the option of a matched beer or gin flight created by Northcote sommelier Alexandros Kitsos. Proceeds from each event will go towards the BKs Heroes, Blackburn Nightsafe and Blackburn Youth Zone charities. The first two evenings will take place next month, with the other weekend events in April and May.
