Koala Cafe by the Customer Service Class

The Customer Service class put all their practice into a real-life situation today when they made lunch for the students at the Koala Cafe.  The class researched recipes and wrote a menu description for their dishes.  The shopped for food and made delicious dishes for the students and teachers to eat.  The Thai Basil Chicken was very popular and there was a choice of tasty desserts either apple pie or warm pancakes and fresh fruit.  The students were able to greet customers and wait on the tables. The washing-up wasn’t as popular though!

We hope you enjoyed our food!

What are your future plans when you finish your Lexis English studies?

I am travelling to New Zealand when my course finishes and then I will return to Switzerland to commence my Bachelor in Zoology  

My passion is to work with polar bears and travel to Alaska to assist in the conservation challenges this amazing animal faces. 

What do you do in your spare time?

I like exploring so I have been through Fraser Island, Australia Zoo, through the amazing National Parks and beaches here and normally on a Thursday or Friday night I go out with my friends to dance and catch up!

Say Cheeeese!!!

Lexis Noosa students had a great afternoon tasting some of Australia’s awesome cheeses along with a little bit of wine of course!

4.5 4

MERSEY VALLEY CHEDDAR

Mersey Valley is Australia’s best loved vintage club cheddar! Mersey Valley vintage club cheddar was created over 35 years ago. Mersey Valley Classic has an extra strong bite, which is balanced with a crumbly melt-in your mouth texture. Mersey Valley Classic is a very versatile cheese that is perfect for a platter, as a snacking cheese or for use in cooking.

TRILOGY CLUB CHEDDAR

This trilogy club cheese takes vintage cheddar and pairs it with Mediterranean-inspired ingredients like summery herbs and sundried tomatoes. Just one nibble will have you hooked. The South Cape Trilogy range includes 3 cheeses, each cleverly combined with a selection of unique flavours.

JINDI TRIPLE CREAM BRIE

As a dessert cheese, the Jindi Triple Cream is very rich and full flavoured. Its butter- like texture melts in your mouth and the taste lingers for some time. Beneath the white mould bloom lies a glorious golden interior.

KING ISLAND BLUE CHEESE

Blue vein cheese is a unique category of mould ripened cheese as it ripens from the interior, as opposed to the exterior (like soft white cheese). Blue vein has a strong tangy flavour, a pungent aroma and a smooth and creamy texture.

TASMANIAN HERITAGE CAMAMBERT

Tasmanian Heritage Camembert has a wonderfully satisfying smooth, mild and delicate flavour. Its rind has a dense, even white mould covering, with a slight mushroom aroma, revealing a silky yet firm and pale centre.

KENILWORTH CHEESE

Cheese has been made in Kenilworth for more than 60 years. The Cochrane family, dairy farmers in the region for six generations. They recently purchased the Kenilworth cheese factory and it is now known as Kenilworth Dairies. The Cochrane farms provide the freshest, highest quality milk from their farms, a short distance away in the Mary Valley. This milk is made into the delicious cheese, yoghurt, mousse, and ice cream produced at Kenilworth Dairies.

Hope you all had a great afternoon. Enjoy the long weekend
