Shake up your next salad with a dash of 'Dressed'
What makes a tossed salad great? A delicious dressing made with simple, tasty ingredients is the perfect finishing touch to any salad full of fresh, wholesome produce.
TAFE Queensland Ipswich Diploma of Hospitality Management (SIT50416) students have recently collaborated on a special project, creating an authentic dressing ideal for splashing on a bowl of leafy greens.
TAFE Queensland Leading Vocational Hospitality and Cookery Teacher, Andrew Bowden, has been working closely with the students to help create the signature dressing, aptly named ‘Dressed’.
“Our students have designed an authentic, classic dressing that really is the perfect accompaniment to fresh, home-grown salad ingredients from our region,” said Andrew.
“Hands-on, practical training is a key component to the Diploma of Hospitality Management (SIT50416) course, and the students have been working together to design a dressing that is full of flavour, but is a healthier alternative to heavy, creamy styles of dressings.” he added.
Diploma of Hospitality Management (SIT50416) students can sharpen their people management skills throughout the year-long course, gaining must-have knowledge for leading teams in the fast-paced industry. Students can also hone their customer service skills in the fully operational training restaurant, The Miner’s Right, at the Ipswich campus.
The course covers managerial level skills including rostering, budgeting, marketing, and people management as well as how to operate a bar and prepare espresso coffee, which are all taught by Andrew and the team of experienced hospitality teachers.
TAFE Queensland’s Ipswich campus is located just over 45 mins from the Lockyer Valley, an agriculturally rich region that hosts world-class growers and producers. More recently, the region has been helping to cultivate careers in the hospitality, food and tourism industries, with regular farm-to-plate style events and food tours ideal for both locals and visitors alike to enjoy.
