FedUni hospitality students to serve up Jamaican culinary experience

HOSPITALITY student Laura Schultz hadn’t made Jamaican food before this year, let alone tasted it.

But after cooking the cuisine, Ms Schultz is a fan. 

Federation University students have been introducing Ballarat residents to non-commercial cuisines at Prospects Training restaurant this semester. 

Next week the students will prepare Jamaican. 

Teacher Ryan Pearce asked third-year commercial cookery students to prepare a series of dishes that would take their customers on a culinary and cultural journey. 

So far they have served seafood, Japanese, Asian, Greek and African dishes.

Prospects restaurant will serve a Jamaican banquet on September 3 and 4, from 6pm to 9.30pm. Tickets cost $33.
