Corrine
Tell us a little bit about your journey in to the hospitality industry.
– I have always had a passion for baking, it is something I truly love, so a career progression into pastry seemed perfect.
Favourite dish on the menu?
– Our new chocolate plate! (see pic 1 on the OXO Instagram) Lemon and white chocolate cheesecake, apricot and milk chocolate mouse and finally a dark chocolate and cherry tart.
– A woman who has inspired you?
All my female colleagues over my career in hospitality.
 
Sky
Tell us a little bit about your journey in to the hospitality industry.
– I started to bake a lot during lockdown and it turned in to a real passion of mine! A family friend then suggested I try the industry so I then went in to high production at the excel. I’m currently studying at Westminster college which is where I landed my internship here at OXO for the past 5 weeks!
Favourite dish on the menu?
– The rhubarb pavlova
A woman who has inspired you?
– Corrine, the woman’s a legend.
 
Mia
Tell us a little bit about your journey in to the hospitality industry.
– I started a cake business during lockdown which is where my real passion began. I then won a competition to go to Switzerland to make chocolate, an absolutely incredible experience. I am now at Westminster Kingsway college which has led me to my internship here at OXO, it has been an amazing experience.
Favourite dish on the menu?
– It has to be the new chocolate plate.
A woman who has inspired you?
– Same as Sky, it has to be Corrine, she is such an incredible woman and has made our time here at OXO the best experience.
 
Sky and Mia are both off to America for a years placement in pastry this year, we wish them all the luck in their exciting journey.
