Wintec’s Training Restaurant Launches First Cookbook

Wintec’s student training restaurant Windows launches its first cookbook in Hamilton next week.

The cookbook - A Taste of Windows - is filled with a collection of the most sought-after recipes developed by Wintec tutors and produced and served by Wintec hospitality students.

Wintec hospitality tutor, Barry Finch said: “We’re excited to be launching our first cookbook. A Taste of Windows is a way of showcasing the skills of our talented tutors and student stars of the future. It also responds to the feedback from our loyal customers who want to know the recipes behind our meals.”

“Our training restaurant is a well-known institution in the region. It is a modern facility where we teach the latest food trends and industry techniques to our students, as well as giving them hands-on experience cooking and presenting to the Waikato public.”

Mr Finch says it is hoped a Windows cookbook will be produced on an annual basis. The cookbook is $15 and with every one sold $6 goes to the charity Child Matters to help prevent harm to children in New Zealand.

There are recipes for every occasion, as well as dishes from this year’s popular themed banquets - An Arabic Journey through the Ages, A Chocolate Degustation, A Taste of Malt and A South African Culinary Safari. Windows hosted the banquets which saw around 400 members of the public through its doors.

A Taste of Windows is available to purchase at Windows Restaurant located at the Rotokauri campus on Avalon Drive; through Wintec’s Centre for Hospitality 07-834 8850, or via sue.delacy@wintec.ac.nz.

Windows is also the venue for the region’s largest cooking competition, the Waikato Culinary Fare. It is open to the public for lunch, dinner and private functions throughout the teaching year. For more information on opening times, visit www.wintec.ac.nz/windows.

The cookbook launch will take place between 11am-12pm on Monday 12 November at Windows, Wintec Rotokauri Campus, Avalon Drive, Hamilton. It will be attended by Wintec staff and students, loyal customers and industry professionals. Copies of the cookbooks will be available for purchase at the launch.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
