Our kitchen produces all the food which is freshly prepared each day and sold in our café.
Our students benefit from working in a small commercial kitchen to create a variety of sweet and savoury goodies.
Their targeted learning is focused on:
✓ Kitchen safety; based on each students ability they learn what is safe and unsafe in a potentially hazardous environment including which surfaces and items can be hot as well as working with knives
✓ Personal hygiene; learning the importance of washing hands, wearing gloves and wearing an apron
✓ Food hygiene; understanding best buy dates, learning basic food preparation including washing, the different methods of storing various food groups and avoidance of cross contamination during food preparation
✓ Food recognition
✓ Recipes; learning the recipes for the items sold in our café as well as how to create a personal recipe book
✓ Cooking; learning basic techniques including peeling, chopping, mixing, measuring and some simple baking
✓ Washing up and cleaning - yes, those jobs everyone hates!
