Exeter’s young professionals get creative in the kitchen

27th October 2016

Members of Gilbert Stephens’ Young Professionals Network (YPN) recently hosted a tasty networking session at Exeter Cookery School, one of the region’s hottest new culinary destinations. Having been handed three recipes by the school’s head chef and tutor, Jim Fisher, the group was divided into teams and then let loose on the kitchen to create three festive canapés. Despite the look of sheer panic on some of their faces, with a little encouragement everyone was soon prepping like pros and surprised themselves by creating a veritable feast for the evening.

The group of up-and-coming young professionals from various sectors, including legal, accounting and health, enjoy nothing more than meeting up on a monthly basis to socialise with their peers as well as learning new skills. This event was extra special, as it signifies the YPN’s 6th Birthday. The group has continued to grow in strength since launching in 2010, and is now one of the city’s biggest networking groups, with a membership of over 300.

Rachael Hodnett from South West Communications said: “I had a brilliant time. It was a fun, educational and extremely tasty evening!”
