A BARNSLEY lad has secured a job working for celebrity chef Raymond Blanc in his two Michelin star restaurant.

Nick Bentley, a former Barnsley College catering student, had a 12-week placement at Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxford and made such a good impression he was offered a job.

Nick, 20, said: “I’m really looking forward to going to work at such a high profile and high standard kitchen. I’m also excited about everything I’m going to learn."
