Cape Town Hotel School prepares third course at 2009 Table of Unity

alt

The CPUT Cape Town Hotel School, together with other leading hospitality training institutions and the Gourmet SA team, recently helped put together the 2009 Table of Unity event on Table Mountain

The event, which was held on On 17 May 2009, was in aid of a variety of different children’s charities such as the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.

Each year the Table of Unity organisers approach different hotels and restaurants to prepare one of the three courses that will be served on the day. Each hotel or restaurant is responsible for the recipes, ideas and food preparation staff. Sponsors such as Pick n Pay and Spekko rice provide ingredients.

This year, The Cape Town Hotel School was asked to prepare the dessert which was to be served to over 750 people.

Chefs Jerome Peters and Danielle Schamrell, together with their team, worked day and night to prepare a wonderful duo of passion fruit and chocolate chip mint bavarois accompanied with a rich mint and passion fruit coulis. The dish was by far the firm favorite on the day and was enjoyed by all who attended.

The Cape Town Hotel School was also approached by the organising company to assist with the setup and the serving of the guests on the day.

First year students, under the supervision of Marketing and Functions Co-ordinator for the Cape Town Hotel School Restaurant, Luke van Rensburg, worked during the Cape Town Stormy weather over the weekend period to help set up the event, serve all 750 guests, and clean up afterwards.

This was the Cape Town Hotel School first year group’s first external function, and the students all proudly represented CPUT Cape Town Hotel School at an excellent level, receiving praise from all other organisers as well as those who attended.

The CPUT Cape Town Hotel School looks forward to participating in Table of Unity 2010.
