From food scraps to tasty dishes

In February 2012, our trainer Celine Teh shared pointers on making impactful presentations to diploma undergraduates.

In March, she gave tips to a group of degree undergraduates. They were students who are taking the English for Academic Reading and Writing module at Berjaya University College of Hospitality.

After her talk, the students were assigned to a Food Scraps Project as a way to practice what they have learned.

On April 3rd, Group 3 comprising Jasmine, Nicole and Siti presented their two dishes.

Their Tamarind Banana Peel In Spicy Gravy and Deep Fried Watermelon Rind Balls were among the best dishes compared to the other groups. It was amazing to see and taste delicious dishes made of food that we always thought of as scraps.

Jasmine said: “I enjoyed the project but it was challenging to get everyone together to discuss and try out the recipes because we are from different programs. Nevertheless, I learned grammar and presentation skills from the project.”

Siti quipped, “I enjoyed the project although I have to go back to Singapore on most weekends. Are the dishes nice?”

The banana peel in spicy tamarind gravy tasted like a familiar vegetable dish that would go well with warm rice. Whereas, the Deep Fried Watermelon Rind Balls has a melon-like texture encased in savoury fried batter, making the dish a good snack, anytime.
