Students from the Le Cordon Bleu Australia Bachelor of Business (Food Entrepreneurship) enjoyed the opportunity to meet with South Australia’s finest food producers at Think Food, an industry-focused tradeshow presented by Food South Australia and supported by Primary Industries and Regions South Australia.
Food South Australia joined forces with Tasting Australia to present Think Food, South Australia’s only dedicated food tradeshow, in the Town Square Conference Pavilion on Victoria Square in the heart of Adelaide. Producers were able to showcase their current products to buyers from hotels, restaurants and supermarkets around Australia and beyond and students were able to talk to the producers and enjoy tasting the different products.
Students in the food entrepreneurship program study food production, which introduces students to core culinary and artisanal methods and techniques relevant to small scale food (and beverage) production, with hands-on ‘intensives’ in bread, cheese, confectionery, smallgoods and brewing. Students also study product development, food merchandising, the fundamentals of gastronomic practise and the language of flavour, all with a view to developing their own food concepts.
This excursion, as part of their industry workshop, was hosted by Academic Manager for Le Cordon Bleu Dr Susie Chant.
