Fine Dining Event
1st year and final year International Hotel Management and Tourism batches and senior Excellence in Culinary Arts and Patisserie batch organized a Fine Dining session a few weeks ago.
Following the theme “Under the water”, the rooms division students (front office and housekeeping) transformed one of the labs at the college into an underwater-themed restaurant. The rooms division students welcomed the esteemed guests to the restaurant that they called Aqua Koh, which denotes an island in Thai. The entire decor is comprised of blue, green, brown, and other marine colors. Starting from the blue paper boat chandelier with fairy lights, through the swimming paper fishes on the walls, to the blue and brown tableware, everything was befitting for the theme.
The beverage prepared for the guests was a Manchiko mocktail, a blissful concoction of mango juice, coconut milk, chili syrup, and pomegranate juice and it was prepared by the students with Food & Beverage Service Management as their major subject.
The students with Food Production as their major prepared the following items as per the Thai Cuisine:
Amuse bouche- Homemade prawn crackers with spicy cabbage salad and sweet chili sauce.
Appetizer: Chicken satay and som tam salad.
Tender boneless chicken skewers marinated in Thai aromatic herbs and spices paired with a tangy Thai papaya salad.
