Virtual College is also teaming up with ‘The 60 Second Chef’, Patrick Drake, to harness his cookery knowledge and skills with their online learning expertise.

Patrick is a presenter on Discovery, National Geographic and Fox, and the head chef of the world’s largest recipe box service, HelloFresh. His mission is to make cooking and great food accessible to everyone. Patrick came across Virtual College some years ago, when he completed his first online certificated food hygiene course with them.

For National Cupcake Week, Patrick has created a Guinness Cupcake recipe which he demonstrates via a free 60 second video. You can access this video here

Virtual College is partnering with ‘The 60 Second Chef’ using their complementary skills and expertise to create a series of bite-sized certificated courses which can be accessed online. These will be launched soon to help people with a busy lifestyle cook healthy, tasty and nutritious recipes.
