Dr. B
Description:
December 1989. View of staff behind the counter of Dr. B's Caribbean Restaurant, set up by Doctor Barnado's, the young people's charity. The restaurant was run with funding from Task Force, the Home Office and Leeds City Council. The 36 seater venue provided young people with City and Guilds, Caterbase Hotel and Catering Training Board qualifications over two years, and they were paid YTS training allowances. The restaurant proved very popular for its traditional dishes of Caribbean chicken, steamed fish with cornmeal, stuffed cheese aubergine, served with gunga peas and rice, leaks, plantain and roast potatoes. The successful scheme continues today with approximately 70% of the young people trained finding work in the catering industry. The large, red brick restaurant opens for lunch from Tuesday to Friday.
