Catering Students have recently been involved in working with fresh produce supplier DeliFresh to find out more about how they can use vegetables in diets and cooking.
DeliFresh supplied our City Campus with fruit, vegetables and herbs for the Level 3 VRQ Advanced Professional Chef students. The session they took part in was designed to educate the students on the variety and carious uses of the different fruit and vegetables.
This was an excellent opportunity for the students to gain a lot of new knowledge on various produce and develop their skills to help with the vegetable unit of their course. The session was also designed to improve menu writing skills too.
Martyn Reeve, Sunderland College Catering Lecturer said:
“The session was excellent. It really showed the students a new range of interesting and exciting products. It will be great when we do our vegetable unit to order some of the produce and incorporate them into dishes.”
The catering students will be taking part in further trips and visits with DeliFresh this year, which includes a cheese factory trip, rhubarb farm visit and asparagus picking.
