Joe Hunt, 31, is Production Chef of The Sheffield College’s Silver Plate Restaurant, which offers high quality cuisine to the public whilst training the next generation of catering and hospitality students in the skills that the industry needs.

Prior to joining The Sheffield College in 2015, Joe notched up industry experience at the famous and award-winning, River Cottage in Devon. He worked alongside chefs there and ran cookery courses. He originally trained at High Peak College and set up his own brasserie at the age of 19 that he ran for three years.

Sheffield College“Food is a massive part of my life and always has been,” says Joe. “I’ve early memories of sitting around a huge table with 20 family and friends all laughing and eating. That sense of social ritual is so important to me. The kids at primary school wanted to be footballers or astronauts but I knew I wanted to be a chef and cook all day.”

The Silver Plate Restaurant has a strong reputation for its food, value and service. The 60-seater training restaurant is open four lunchtimes and two evenings a week, and provides meals created by catering students under the supervision of experienced staff.

The Sheffield College has award winning catering and hospitality staff and students, and a national reputation with strong connections to industry. For more information, visit or call 0114 2602060.
