Holmesglen Students Enjoyed World’s Longest Lunch

Last year it was Gordon Ramsey this year it was Jamie Oliver.

For a select group of Hospitality students studying at Holmesglen working at the 2010 Melbourne Food & Wine Festival is about gaining practical work experience at first class events.

19 students from Holmesglen’s Centre for Hospitality, Cookery and Bakery were excited to be involved in the festival’s World’s Longest Lunch to be held at Marysville on March 12.
The students participated in both back and front-of-house roles with all food preparation undertaken at the Holmesglen’s Rural Learning Centre at Eildon.

This was a-once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the students to not only gain valuable work experience but also meet and work with arguably one of the world’s most renown chef’s – Jamie Oliver.

Holmesglen’s Centre for Hospitality, Cookery and Bakery offers a 21st century education, with the latest in multi-media educational software, experienced and enthusiastic teachers, and individualized attention from lecturers.

The smaller scale classes offered at Holmesglen means they can offer greater flexibility in course structure and delivery than some larger organisations, creating a friendly working and learning environment. In modern, industry standard kitchens and classrooms, a balanced blend of classical and modern cooking techniques are taught.

Teachers at the institute come from white hat restaurants and five star hotels bring their expertise to the classroom where there are options for further study and career advancement.

The Holmesglen Institute and Rural Learning Centre, have forged a strong relationship with the local Marysville community and are proud to be involved in the Marysville Longest Lunch event.
