Brekkies, Market Days and Degustation Dinners
In between brekkies, market days and degustation dinners, RGIT’s Hospitality Department has been busy serving quality meals filling RGIT staff and student bellies from sunrise to sunset. Commercial Cookery course students served the most important meal of the day for the week of 21-25 August, with hospitality students holding market days and serving degustation dinners at Om Restaurant, Level 1 of Melbourne Main Campus as part of their training. Over 179 students indulging their taste-buds over the three weeks, with Lana more than happy to have her say:

"What a beautifully cooked menu. Hot paella with crunchy sausage! Succulent veal with mushroom sauce on a bed of creamy cabbage! Cucumber and smoked salmon cream! Roast beef and mustard cream canapés! Snapper with fennel! Asian salad! And much more … It was Yum! Yum! Yum!”

Happy Hours
Hospitality students had the opportunity to put their hands-on training to the test at OBAR6, Level 6 of RGIT Melbourne Campus last week. Happy Hours saw alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages served by hospitality students and their Trainer in accordance with Operate a Bar (SITHFAB202), learning performance outcomes as well as skills and knowledge required to prepare a bar for service. As well as these skills and knowledge, students also learned how to professionally and warmly take drink orders, prepare and serve drinks, and close down the bar at the end of each successful session. For the price of a gold coin, RGIT staff and students mingled while enjoying a beautifully prepared cocktails, beers, wines and soft drinks.
