CIT culinary students welcomed to their kitchens six students along with lecturer and chef Timothy Kao, from Temasek Culinary Academy in Singapore. Here for a week, our visitors exchanged industry skills and expertise, as they immersed themselves into Australian culinary culture. They shared all things desserts with our final year students, and a highlight was preparing a range of artisan breads in our pastry kitchen.
Of course they could not leave town without a regional taste of Canberra. They visited a vineyard in Murrumbateman, a game and fine food producer in Hall, and explored Braddon’s pop-up restaurant culture, before winding up with a staging opportunity at the Rotary Club of Hall Farmers Market at EPIC, where Chef Timothy drew a huge crowd to sample his classic Singapore Crab.
