There is still no date for the reopening of the public restaurant at the La Cónsula catering and hospitality college in Churriana, near Malaga. The top training facility, which has launched the careers of many well-known local chefs, is waiting for the Junta de Andalucía to approve the prices it wants to charge diners. In the meantime the students are cooking and serving dishes for each other.
This is the second academic year that the public restaurant has been closed since the college itself restarted its classe after a period of uncertainty. Now with the facility operating again, it is only the restaurant that remains closed. The Junta de Andalucía's representative for Malaga province, José Luis Ruiz Espejo, has said that “some administrative matters and legal reports” are still missing.
The proposal to reopen the restaurant was first sent to the Junta, which is responsible the college, in October. It would open Monday to Thursday for lunch.
