The Channel 4 series, Kitchen Impossible, which starred internationally famous chef Michel Roux Junior, was filmed at Bromley College’s Hospitality, Food and Enterprise Career College.
The four-part series, which ran from the end of October into November, featured Roux Junior monitoring eight young people with varying disabilities, ranging from Tourette’s Syndrome to blindness, who embarked on a four-week catering course with the aim of gaining employment in the industry.
The college’s Orpington campus, which opened in September 2014, features a student-led restaurant, BR6, which provided the venue for the young people to practice their catering skills.
Sam Grace, executive producer at Twofour, the company which produced the series, said: “On such a major Channel 4 production, we needed a location that had equally high standards when it came to its facilities, kitchens and training restaurant – and Bromley College fitted the bill perfectly.
“Thanks to Michel and Bromley College, our trainees received the very highest standard of training that has fully prepared them for their future careers in hospitality and catering."
