Congratulations to the Crown Institute of Studies students who competed at the 2013 New Zealand Culinary Fare.
Students from Crown competed for the first time in the Original/Innovative Cocktail class of the Fare. They were awarded silver and bronze medals. The judging was extremely strict compared to the Auckland Regional Culinary Fare. No gold medals were awarded in the Original/Innovative Cocktail class, so this was a great result.
Chris Saw’s ‘Mad Craving’ cocktail won him a silver medal. He used some really interesting ingredients such as fresh ginger, raspberry jam, rhubarb and his own homemade sour mix. The judges commented on how well he had infused strawberry Skittles in the Finlandia Vodka that he used in the cocktail.
The Crown students all study in the Certificate in International Hospitality – Food and Beverage Service course. This is a very popular course where students gain six NZQA National Certificates and the internationally recognised London City and Guilds Diploma.
Along with the class-work, the course includes focused career sessions, graduate career guidance and an up to date job zone. Many of our students gain relevant work experience while studying. Students are supported during studies to become work ready and hit the ground running. Crown hospitality students work in many of Auckland’s prestigious hotels, restaurants and bars.
Studying a hospitality course can help you to secure one of the best jobs in the industry, as there is a shortage of experienced workers. Vacancies can appear suddenly, so when the perfect opportunity arises, you want to be prepared, knowing you're qualified with the experience and expertise to be in the running for a great position.
