City View Restaurant at Shooters Hill Post 16 Campus are holding a fund raising event on the evening of 7th February to help pay for a trip to Paris in April for their level 2 & 3 students. Most of the food will be donated by their suppliers, 3663, and other suppliers have either donated a raffle prize or given a discount. The Paris trip will also be funded by diners’ tips over the last year.
While in Paris the students will be having a go at croissant and baguette making, as well as seeing the sights of the city.
The evening costs £30, and starts with a tasting of some of the college’s French wines, with the opportunity to buy some to drink with your meal. The menu has a very French theme:

Escargots a l’ail
Snails in Garlic Butter
