We are excited to announce that from Monday 7 January 2019, our new catering company CucinA Restaurants Ltd will be offering a wide range of innovative fresh food service to all of our students, which will be available all day. 

Following a review by a panel of students and staff, several companies were invited to come along and show what they can offer in way of tasty and healthy meals. The panel sampled many menus, but after much deliberation, CucinA won the bid in a healthy eating campaign!

Starting the New Year with a fresh and varied menu prepared by an Executive Chef, we will now be able to offer a Breakfast Service from 8.15-8.40am, with free Porridge for all students.  There will also be available a range of cooked breakfasts which can be purchased by all staff and students at discounted rates, such as bacon and tomato rolls, croissants, blueberry pancakes, and cereals.

The new team will roll out branding for the Sixth Form café. Based on a coffee house style menu, the new ‘Pronto’ café in Frome Futures will offer a relaxed and upmarket New York deli area, where students and staff can buy a fabulous range of premium sandwiches, salads, hot handheld snacks and new one-pot meals. This area will be open from 10.00am – 2.30pm where staff and students can meet or study.

CucinA promise to mainly use fair trade products and produce from the UK, with fish from sustainable stocks. By linking their menus with our curriculum, they plan to work with Frome College students each week as part of their NVQ coursework, and help with training in food preparation and cooking.  We hope to continue expanding the College garden with the ‘Grow it, eat it’ project enabling our fully trained Chef’s to prepare freshly picked produce every day, and encourage our students to cook their own fruit and vegetables.

On top of a different hot menu in the main restaurant every day, CucinA hope to incorporate an afterschool ‘take away’ type facility, whereby students and staff can purchase food and drinks to take home or an afterschool club.
We endeavour to have full details and up to date menus on our website as soon as possible. In the fullness of time, we hope to be able to offer local businesses our facilities for breakfast meetings and conferences, further information will follow once we have established the new systems.

During this process, we will also be looking at our finance systems, and will be introducing a cashless paying system. This may take time, therefore more information will be sent home once the system has been implemented.  
We are confident that our families, students and staff will be delighted with the fantastic range of new options available to suit all needs.  Any students or staff, who have special dietary requirements, are invited to speak to the Executive Chef who will be more than happy to find something suitable each day.
