Our teacher Sam and his cooking option class tried to make homemade pasta this afternoon for the first time. As a pasta lover i’m happy to say that it looked and tasted very yummy!
We found out that all the cooking class enjoy hot and spicy food! This week we researched types of curry from around the world and we decided to make curry from India. Using fresh locally grown ginger from Buderim and green beans from Gympie we made two types of curry with condiments.
Everyone found out how to make naan bread, which is a great alternative when you are travelling and camping as it’s quick and easy to make and you can leave to rise whilst you are driving along!
We had a great time talking about food, describing tastes and aromas and following and adapting the recipes we chose together!
Now all that’s left to do is eat and enjoy!
Here in Noosa we have many amazing students who find a way to balance studying English, working and enjoying the beautiful beaches. Tony is one of these students and he has been generous enough to share his experience with us.
Tony has been in Noosa since March 2017 and on Saturdays he works at the Eumundi Markets, a popular tourist market in the small town of Eumundi. On Sundays he works at the local Noosa Farmers Market in Noosaville where he is responsible for cooking the dumplings and also selling them to customers. He has been working there for one month and likes it because it gives him the opportunity to meet locals and practise his English with them.
If you’re looking for a job in Noosa he recommends writing a really good description of your skills. He recommends asking your friends if they know of any jobs in the area and to also look on a website called Gum Tree. He also believes that local employers are looking for students with work experience who learn really quickly and are hard working.
Tony sent out many resumes and after two months of looking and hard work he found the job that was right for him. He feels that working your first week with the company is very important as they will be watching and judging if you are taking the job seriously as well as making sure that you are the right fit for their company.
Congratulations to Yeongsoo Choi on finding a job at Rococo Bistro & Bar and Guillermina Kairuz Ibanez for finding a job with Bistro C both restaurants are on our iconic Hastings Street in Noosa Heads. Both students will be working in the kitchen helping to prepare meals and doing the dishes. If you see them around the school and at their restaurants don’t forget to say hello and congratulate him!

What are the class doing? It’s okay the crocodile is safe and was cubed and put in a delicious marinade!
We designed three different marinades from fresh ingredients and left the crocodile to tenderise overnight. We had the stir-fried cubed meat as a kebab with healthy fresh vegetables and rice. Our chef Karina showed us how to present the rice in an attractive way using a measuring cup to form half a sphere. This is why she is the professional! Fabulous Karina!
Students thought that the crocodile meat was similar in taste to chicken but had the texture of fish. It is a delicacy in Australia and all the students had a try! It’s good to try new foods when we visit a different country!
