Open Day at our Johannesburg Campus has a slightly different activity that takes place. Our Culinary Club students are extremely fortunate to get to work with a great South African Brand, Mediterranean Delicacies. Offering an exclusive and extensive range of authentic Mediterranean-style food products, Mediterraean Delicacies are the market leader in the production of dips and specialized products in South Africa. Their range includes dips & pates, olives & olive oil, pickles, meze products, pesto’s, cheeses and fresh pastries as well as value added seafood products. Their market includes retail stores, foodservice & hospitality clients throughout South Africa.
Each Open Day the Culinary Club members are presented with a basket of ingredients and take part in a cook off. Here are their recipes from the October Open Day.
