St Charles and Mission Services have once again partnered to provide food demonstrations to the clients of Mission Services, once a month.
Chef Vijay Jos from the Culinary Arts Program at St Charles was at Mission Services at Wentworth St North to demonstrate healthy eating habits with emphasis on using the products the clients are able to get from the food bank.
Chef Vijay prepared Tuna Pasta Salad and Garden Vegetable Pasta Salad for the clients, emphasizing ways the same recipe can be used to prepare different dishes. The art of presentation and modification of recipes thrilled the clients and staff at Mission services. Everyone who tried the samples offered at the end of the demo were thrilled and were interested in more tips and advice about other dishes. As the winter months roll in, there will be more of these collaborative ventures offering soups, stews, and a variety of interesting meal options.
