A huge slice of success for college’s Star Bakers

 

Hospitality students Exose Grant Lopo-Ndinga and Sanjam Nagpal saw their success catapult them from training kitchen to TV for the hit series Bake Off: The Professionals

 

The former hospitality students, who went on to carve out careers as professional chefs, impressed Benoit Blin and Cherish Finden with their culinary prowess after being revealed as contestants.

22-year-old Exose and 20-year-old Sanjam, graduated from the college in 2016 with Level 3 diplomas in Pastry and Confectionery. Exose went onto work at James Martin Manchester’s casino restaurant while Sanjam got a job as Pastry Chef at the Dorchester Hotel in London.

 

Exose, who practised working with sugar for the show under the guidance of his former tutors in Trafford College’s training kitchens, wowed judges with his sugar work and chocolate bon bons.

He said: “It was unreal to actually be in something we have watched on television, but so useful because we had feedback from two of the top pastry chefs in the country.

“We owe a lot to our lecturers at Trafford College for sharing their skills, knowledge and expertise.”

 

Sanjam, added: “I would recommend anyone with a passion for pastry and baking to do a course at Trafford College – who knows where you’ll end up? Maybe like me, moving from Manchester to London, and working at one of the top hotels in the country!
