Students exposed to various facets of kitchen operations

Mrs. B. S. Mtshali (Hospitality Lecturer) shares her expertise on food plating with the student during the practical.

Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, helping you burn calories throughout the day. It also gives you the energy you need to get things done and helps you focus at work or at school. Those are just a few reasons why it’s the most important meal of the day.

Centre for People Development (CPD) Campus Level 2 NCV Hospitality students had their ISAT (Final Practical Exam). They were divided into two groups, namely for food preparations and hospitality services. The food preparation group prepared the breakfast in the kitchen, whilst the hospitality services group performed both venue preparation and waitron activities.

The ISAT practical was compulsory for all Level 2 students to participate in. Mr. R. P. Coetzer (CPD Kitchen Manager) said he was happy and impressed with the students performance. “The students did really well today, and I’m sure they will obtain good results,” concluded Mr. Coetzer.

In attendance were Business Studies lecturers who were invited to witness and taste the students culinary skills. The practical proved to be an overwhelming success and left the attendees astonished.
