Certificate IV in Patisserie students of Le Cordon Bleu Brisbane have put their skills to the test with the preparation of incredible Chocolate Showpieces. Taking great care and practising their eye for detail, the students explored various chocolate techniques such as moulding and spraying, to create an edible work of art.
For a creative challenge, Brisbane Patisserie students had six hours to create an artistic chocolate display centre piece, based on their own ideas to create. From lotus flowers to Minions, this very challenging but rewarding exercise allowed budding Le Cordon Bleu Pastry Chefs the opportunity to be creative and present a showpiece that is truly unique and skilled.
Brisbane Campus students and lecturers visited the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) for a presentation of their WHS practices and policies. This provided students with the opportunity to learn from the gallery’s WHS Manager, Craig Jamieson, and the Executive Chef who outlined some of the strategies that they follow to minimise and protect their employees from injuries. Exploring risks and hazards within the kitchen and throughout the gallery, the presentation gave valuable insight into procedures which ensure that all employees are aware of how to work safely.
