The new canapé creation course offered by ServiceIQ is a great way to introduce cookery students to the exciting world of catering. The fun starter will help give culinary students confidence and inspiration to take an even greater interest in a cookery career.
Mastering the art of the mini tart and many other delicious bite-size treats is designed for those studying at Level 3.
ServiceIQ Product Development Manager Phil O’Brien, said it’s a welcome addition to the cookery menu and much more than just a replacement for the cocktail food course that was moved to Level 4.
“They’ll have gained four credits, an array of really useful skills, and proof they can prepare and present basic hot and cold canapés in the commercial kitchen.”
The recipes include: ‘barbequed pork fillet mini tartlets with red onion and thyme confit’, ‘fig and olive tapenade’, and ‘Asian crab salad croustades’.
Students will learn how to select good quality ingredients, and practice different cooking and preparation techniques from moulding, skinning, trimming, mincing, slicing, chilling, filling, crumbing, battering and more. They will learn how to cook piping hot canapés at the last possible minute so that they are in the perfect condition when the tray is circulated to guests.
