Challenger Institute of Technology’s training restaurant, Quinlan’s, recently hosted a group of aspiring junior MasterChefs.
Melville Primary School’s year two class showed off their culinary prowess in the kitchen through the creation of a selection of delicious party foods including mini quiches, fresh fish fingers, scones and rocky road.
On preparing and sampling the menu, the group also took the opportunity to demonstrate their remarkable knowledge of a variety of foods, cuisines and healthy eating.
Challenger Institute hospitality lecturer Patrick Carter, who coordinated the excursion, said the group were all exceptionally enthusiastic and passionate about cooking.
“Although only young, the kids expressed a terrific understanding of food and cooking,” Patrick said.
“The excursion was a unique opportunity for the class to enter a working kitchen, get their hands dirty and taste an assortment of yummy food created from scratch, giving them a sense of pride and satisfaction.”
Challenger Institute’s hospitality training area specialises in providing industry-relevant training and apprenticeships in hospitality careers ranging from bar service to commercial cookery. Challenger’s courses provide students with the opportunity to gain real-life experience at Quinlan’s training restaurants in Fremantle and Mandurah, which are also open to the public
