Chef’s in School

Standard

The Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association (SLHTA) has established a new initiative aimed at educating and supporting students pursuing culinary and/or home economics studies in local Secondary and Tertiary Schools on the island. This initiative will involve a school visit by a Chef of the Saint Lucia Culinary Team to speak with students aspiring to careers in culinary arts.

The visiting Chef will share career highlights, past experiences and industry information with students and guide them in a practical preparation of a dish using local ingredients.  The experience, which will be conducted over a one hour period, is designed to raise the awareness of students about local cuisine and encourage students to use more local ingredients in the preparation of healthy meals.

The programme will commence in September 2012, upon the commencement of the new school year.
