Vegetarian Mystery Box

Vegetarian Mystery Box

One of my classes this term has been a vegetarian class, where some ingredients were ordered and we were told we had four-and-a-half hours to create three vegetarian dishes. It’s a fundamental part of where the food industry is going, with the growing awareness of allergens and […]

College to University

College to University

With Freshers’ over and everyone moved in, assignments handed out and student loans dwindling, it really does feel like university life has started. By now everyone’s been to their course inductions, started classes and, if you’re anything like me, trying to desperately learn about Harvard […]

Saving money at college

Saving money at college

As said in a previous post (Differences between college and school, point number 7), college somehow does seem to drain your money very quickly. Last time I mentioned a number of things your money gets spent on: travel fairs, food, notebooks and general shopping in […]

NVQ level 2 Professional cookery 101

Starting on NVQ Level 2 this year? This is my cheat sheet for how to succeed in the first year of this course. Ok, so before starting this course you’ll think you can cook. Wrong! I thought when I started that I would be fairly […]
