Sixth-form students of The Lodge School will get to showcase their culinary skills when the school stages a Product Development Expo on Tuesday, March 27, at Emerald City Supermarket, Six Roads, St. Phillip, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The Expo is an opportunity for the students doing the Caribbean Examinations Council’s Food and Nutrition at CAPE level to fulfil their Unit 2 requirements, as well as to produce new and innovative products using indigenous Barbadian produce.
Students will not only be required to show skill and creativity in the composition and preparation of the dishes but are also expected to create practical options for persons living with chronic non-communicable diseases (CNCDs).
Special demonstrations will also be made by past and present students on Cooking Just for Men – How to Surprise that Special Person, Cake Decoration Made Simple and Pastry Making.
Chief Executive Officer of the Barbados Agricultural Society, James Paul, will deliver remarks at the Expo which will also be attended by Managing Director of Emerald City Supermarket, Andrew Bynoe.
