Weekly Specialist Workshops
As the programme progresses you will focus on preparing three-course menus. These include:
Menu Planning & Costing
This module starts with an introduction to commercial kitchen setup. Menu planning and costing helps you develop an awareness of food costs while learning how to create a well balanced menu. During the programme you will work individually to design menus for specific occasions and within a set budget. This helps your understanding of the skills required to succeed in a hospitality and culinary environment while further developing your general knowledge of cookery.
Explore the concept of food & wine matching and an introduction to the world of wine, completing the WSET Level 1 Award in Wine.
During the programme, you will have two weeks work placement during semester one and a further two weeks in semester two. This gives you invaluable hands-on experience in some of Auckland’s premier cafes and restaurants. During this time you will gain real-life insights into working as a junior chef in a restaurant and café. Many students are offered part time work at these businesses following their work experience module.
Graduates will be able to work as junior chefs in cafés, restaurants, catering, bars, clubs resorts and hotels. NZSFW graduates, because of the highly practical nature of this course, are attractive to prospective employers.
