HTA School of Culinary Art and Hilton Hotels

The HTA School of Culinary Art had the fantastic honour to prepare and serve a 4 course gala dinner for Hilton Hotels at their F&B Masters Conference held at the Durban Hilton on the 23rd of October 2018. After hosting the various rounds of competition for Hilton Hotels for Africa and the Middle East the week before at the HTA campus, 15 first year Students travelled down to Durban to prepare for the event.

5 of the Students were involved in the food tasting and they were then tasked to head up a course each, nominate the rest of the team and prepare all the recipes, ingredients lists and equipment lists that were required. What a learning experience for them! They worked hard and pulled off a fantastic dinner and it was only announced to the dinner delegates after the main course that the entire meal had been prepared and plated by 1st year HTA students. They got a rousing standing ovation which was well deserved. Well done guys, you have made us all very proud!
