What’s on in the Kitchen

Once again it’s been a busy month in the kitchen with Chef David delivering 2 units of training.

We kicked off a new unit of Prepare Asian Salads which was a hit with the students and will offer some great options for spring and summer menus once the weather improves…..

Currently Chef David is in week 2 of Prepare Food to Meet Special Dietary Requirements and the apprentices are learning a range of skills relating to both dietary and cultural requirements. We think we are all more aware of the options / ranges and choices required by venues to cater for the needs of the dining public. We loved sampling these dietary catered dishes, which looked and tasted delicious. The real star of the show was the dessert which looked fantastic and tasted brilliant…and is a healthy option for those of us with a sweet tooth…. diabetic friendly Baked Apples with Berries.

HITsa welcomes our new apprentices who commence training in the coming months and come from such a diverse range of employers including:

  • Fasta Pasta
  • Amber Aged Care
  • Hamilton Secondary School
  • Wellington Hotel
  • Seafire on the Marina
  • Resthaven

Its great to see employers investing in training and providing opportunities for both new apprentices and upskilling existing employees.

We look forward to bringing you Desserts next month – so watch this space.
