The class was split into two teams tasked with creating their own menu and sourcing all the ingredients needed. They were also each asked to invite a guest to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Before opening their one-time-only café, the students had been learning about the different areas involved in hospitality including service, cooking and presentation. After successfully completing their written work about various foods, food safety and how to prepare and serve food, the students were revved up and ready to cook up a storm.
Each student had a job to do, with tasks including food prep, cooking and finally serving up the delicious meals to their eager guests.
The evening’s mouthwatering menu included island fries and a quiche for entrée, chicken cordon bleu or chicken Kiev with mashed potatoes and stir-fried vegetables. And for dessert there were fresh fruit kebabs with ice cream or a slice of fruit cake.
A successful evening on all accounts, with lots of happy diners eager to return to the “Araura Café.”
