| Twenty-five female (25) trainees of Kuru Kuru and other surrounding communities completed their final practical exercise in Commercial Food Preparation training offered by the Board of Industrial Training (BIT).
The final practical exercise brought a closure to the programme which was ongoing for four months at the Kuru Kuru Youth Choice Centre located on the Linden/ Soesdyke Highway.
BIT officials visited the exercise and witnessed a well put together display of various cuisines prepared by the trainees. Mouthwatering food such as, cheesecake, pastries, pies, local style baked chicken, fish, and beef, with various types of fried rice and to top it made from scratch traditional sorrel drink were prepared by the trainees.
Despite the recent completion of the programme, many of the young ladies already started using their skill to earn by preparing pastries a to sell within their communities. Also, many of them informed BIT that before starting the programme, they were without a clue on how to properly bake pastries and cake but confidently could have out together a meal for their household.
Further, the ladies also mentioned that with the Christmas season around the corner, they are no longer subjected to order the traditional Christmas cake form bakery shops, but this time they will be ready to bake cakes for the upcoming season for their families and to sell.
The trainees were not only taught how to prepare the various cuisines, but also receive training on how to package prepared foods, create decorative pieces, exposed to the proper techniques used when preparing and serving food, as well ensuring proper nutrition.
