Birkbeck International Students Cook up a Storm at L’Atelier des Chefs

Students were treated to a kitchen session with professional chef Neal Cooper to learn quick and easy recipes to use throughout their studies.

On Friday 18 of October, twenty international students from the School of Business, Economics and Informatics took part in the first ever Birkbeck cooking class at L’atelier des Chefs. As part of the cookery chain’s Cook, Eat & Run series, Birkbeck students were treated to an hour-long kitchen session with professional chef Neal Cooper. In the space of just sixty minutes, the students were shown how to prepare roast salmon with sweet potato mash alongside a fiery ginger dressing. Naturally, the students could then enjoy their self-prepared meals with a large dessert order of polenta cake.

The cooking classes offered by L’atelier des Chefs have allowed students to learn quick and easy recipes to use throughout their studies and beyond. With the first recipe being a classically British one, future sessions will focus on global cuisine as we celebrate our international student diversity.

By bringing our international students together – all in the name of delicious food – the first Birkbeck cookery class has proven to be a resounding success.

Birkbeck School of Business International London Bus Tour

New international students to the School of Business, Economics and Informatics (BEI) were treated to a tour of London on a 1950s red Routemaster bus.

On Tuesday 8 October, thirty of Birkbeck’s new international students embarked on a whirlwind tour of London on this year’s BEI Bus Tour.

From St. Paul’s Cathedral to the glitz of Piccadilly, newly enrolled students were treated to a comprehensive tour of London’s key sights and streets. What’s more, with a classic 1950s red Routemaster, this was a tour completed in the most quintessentially British way.

After a quick stop off outside City Hall, students were given a walking tour of the eastern Southbank – besides HMS Belfast – before looping into the beating heart of Britain’s financial district. A quick photo opportunity outside St. Paul’s Cathedral doubled as the perfect rest stop before the tour headed towards the West End and Victoria.

Hyde Park Corner saw the students on their home straight before this year’s tour passed along Shaftesbury Avenue and back into Bloomsbury.

Luckily this year the weather was on Birkbeck’s side, for most of the tour anyway…

Here are some shots from an action-packed afternoon of sightseeing.
