DLD College opens Global Kitchen

The independent sixth form college invited a special guest to open its new dining space

DLD College London has opened a new dining space called the ‘Global Kitchen’ and invited Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar to officially open the space.

Irfan Latif, principal at DLD College, said: “It was an honour to welcome Atul to DLD to officially open our Global Kitchen. It was fantastic to hear him speak to pupils and staff, given his illustrious career at some of the UK’s top Indian restaurants.

“Atul has been at the forefront of changing how people perceive and experience Indian cuisine and indeed was the first-ever Indian chef to receive a Michelin star, awarded in 2001 whilst he was at Tamarind in Mayfair.

“He spoke very warmly and kindly to students, and it was a real privilege to watch him unveil our new plaque, marking the occasion.”

Throughout the summer, the college transformed the dining space into a “bright and inviting area for students”. The aim was to reflect the diversity of the college by giving it a global focus.

In addition to the new appearance, DLD has also appointed a new chef, Oliver Towler, who the college said has “embraced the theme with an ever-changing selection of exciting menus”.
