Catering

"Good food is a global thing and I find that there is always something new and amazing to learn - I love it."

 

- Jamie Oliver

Overview

What do we want young people to know about food? Teachers, parents and government are usually in agreement on this. They want young people to have an awareness of the role and value of food in society; an understanding of food science and nutrition; a working knowledge of food safety and hygiene; awareness of consumer issues and skills in food preparation and cooking.

In Food students are taught to apply their knowledge of nutrition, diet, food hygiene and safety in practical ways, as they would in life. Practical food preparation and handling skills are a key aspect of students' work when designing and making food products, dishes and meals, as is teaching consumer-related issues.
