They had dinner at The Apprentice at Edinburgh College and were then shown around the College. On the second day, they had a tour of the Witchery restaurant and rooms, then lunch at 21212, where they were able to meet the renowned Michelin starred chef Paul Kitching and observe the preparation of their own food.
