We were delighted to be able to welcome adult mentors yesterday from the community to see what amazing food products that have been developed by the students in the Transition Year ‘Future is Food’ class. This course has been developed by the Taste Council in collaboration with Bord Bia, educators, food producers, food professionals and chefs as a Transition year unit. It helps students to gain a better understanding of the Irish artisan food sector as well as the wider food industry. Students gain valuable experience of setting up and managing a food mini-company while also learning how their food is produced. Thanks to Tom Doorley (Food Critic, The Restaurant), Shayne Curtin (Chef, the Lemon Tree), Kamila Bystrzonowska (Momo’s) & Christine Fowler (Purchasing Manager, Ardkeen Quality Food Stores) for their mentoring and support!
