“The preservation of our traditions relies heavily on the culinary education of our youth” – Bashar Krayem
Primary school baking sessions at The Culinary School start with basic culinary skills which include safe food handling, hygienic practices within the kitchen, food preparation, nutrition choices and above all, a hands on experience that aims to ignite a love for the culinary arts as well as an appreciation for the hospitality industry as a possible career pathway.
Considered one of our most valuable programs, baking sessions for mature aged high school students present much more than basic culinary skills. The Culinary School understands this period in a teenagers life requires a class to be designed with many factors in mind, including but not limited to, stress management skills, anger management skills, encouraging creativity, encouraging a healthy pastime, nutrition education, food choices and their impact both physically and mentally, positive body image and an appreciation for the hospitality industry as a possible career pathway.
This will be delivered in a fun, laid back environment where students will be able to learn new skills or improve old ones
The Culinary School acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land and that the school has been built on the land of the Daruk and Eora people, who are the original owners and are apart of the oldest surviving continuous culture in the world. We pay our respect to the Elders past and present; we acknowledge their history, their story and their struggle both past and present.
Our Indigenous Culinary Program is designed for both Primary and High School students of all backgrounds. We aim to instill knowledge of indigenous culinary practices using both a theoretical and practical approach delivered by an indigenous elder.
The program will highlight the indigenous culture in a culinary light that aims to be both informative, educational and fun for all ages.
