Food Poduction Laboratories
In our endeavour to impart hands-on skills and experience as part and parcel of their coursework more effectively and efficaciously to our students the food production Lab is equipped with state of the art large, mechanical and food processing equipments and support infrastructure like utensils etc. . It’s an invaluable resource for the students, both at the vocational level and degree level. . This enhances a unique learning experience as our students can apply directly the theory acquired in the lecture halls in actual work environment.
During the practical sessions, emphasis is placed on “learning by doing” with special attention given to the practical side of commercial food preparation. Students gain knowledge of culinary vocabulary, ingredients, equipment use and the principles & techniques of food preparation, skills and knowledge to develop a strong foundation in culinary arts. Students are exposed to cooking and service techniques for poultry, seafood cookery and fabrication, meat, rice, potatoes, vegetables, pasta, soups, stocks, sauces, gravies, snacks, salads, colds cuts and other appetizers, breakfast items, baked goods such as pies, tarts, breads, cake making and decoration and so much more. We focus on foods and cooking styles of many nations as well as menu production reflecting on nations that have impacted international cuisines. We strive to instil marketable skills to our students by demonstrating food preparation skills and teamwork to manage an environment conducive to modern quality food production and service operations.
