The hospitality studies learners at Waterberg Academy at Vaalwater always host restaurant evenings during the third term.

“These evenings normally consist of a four-course meal that is prepared and served by the Grd 10-12 learners,” said André Bridger, the Hospitality Studies educator at Waterberg Academy. 

“A limited amount of tickets are on sale just a few weeks before these events, and are normally sold out very quickly,” he said.

Bridger explained that the restaurant evenings were used to assess the skills and techniques of the learners.

The highlight of the evenings is usually the last function, with the latest held on Friday,15 September. 

The menu started with a puree St. Germain soup with puff pastry twists, followed by an entrée of smoked salmon roulade. The main course of chicken jam-bonette, grilled polenta, stuffed green patty pans and butternut croquettes was served with a berry bavarois and tuilles as dessert.

Bridger said the guests praised the learners for the quality of the food on offer, and the service at the event. 

Bridger said he was proud of each learner in his hospitality class, and congratulated them for the successful evening.
