Following on from the hairdressing and Akamanea programme on Monday, a number of students this time learned about food and the culinary arts at the Cook Islands Tertiary Training Institute (CITTI) Ngatangiia campus.
Aimed, like Monday’s programme at students aged 12-16, Wednesday’s session was all about learning new skills and giving the youngsters more of an insight into some of the further education courses available at CITTI.
Ten students were hard at work in the campus industrial kitchen when CINews dropped by, with the day’s theme, “Going Bananas”, in full swing.
Following on from creating some delicious banana smoothies as a healthy breakfast option, the young chefs were then tasked with creating an old favourite – banana chocolate-chip muffins.
This was followed by fruit salad and deep-fried bananas before the pupils set to work creating a simple lunch of spaghetti bolognaise for their group and those taking part in the culinary arts portion of the day’s schedule.
