Adrian Hornsby set up a challenge for them, “From Sea to Table”. The students were required to gut, descale and fillet their fish, learning advanced knife skills under the careful guidance of Adrian. They then double crumbed their fillets, cooked them and presented it beautifully on a professional platter, fit for any function. Garnished with cucumber swirls, tomato roses, home-made tartare sauce and salad, they couldn’t wait to taste their creation.
What a great opportunity for these students to find out if this is the right career path for them. Special thanks to Adrian from Blue Carrot Catering and Heretaunga College for taking part.
Our Chamber CEO Helen Down said, “seeing these young people take a raw fish and turn it into a beautiful dish by working together was really inspiring. It was clear that several of these young people had never considered they’d be able to do this and they were clearly very proud of what they achieved.”
