Students get a taste for top food from visiting chefs
Students at Manjimup Senior High School were given a cooking lesson by chef Amy Hamilton on Friday.
The Albany-based chef was in the region to meet producers and pick produce to use at the Southern Forests Barbecue Lunch at this weekend’s Truffle Kerfuffle, but also stopped at the school to share her culinary skills.
“It’s important for me to meet with producers in the region to build a connection,” she said.
“It has been fun cooking with the students.”
Ms Hamilton and apprentice Spencer Drygan cooked a rhubarb and apple crumble served with honey truffle ice-cream, much to the delight of students.
Hospitality teacher Lynette Chapman said it was wonderful for students to meet a talented chef.
“Students got to learn about what it’s like to be a chef and explore that career path,” she said.
