Chef Danai worked with Senior Culinary Lecturer, Teneika Eve, to deliver a Marcus’ inspired menu for culinary students and helped teach them how to deliver a gourmet meal under professional kitchen standards, as part of Bermuda College’s Prospect Lunch series.

Students were taught how to make an array of crowd pleasing menu items, including: Roasted Onion and Potato Soup with Ranch Dressing and Fried Leek; Fried Yard Bird Sandwich with Pineapple Salsa, Chili Bok Choy Slaw Aioli and Carrot Sticky Toffee Pudding with Goslings Black Rum, Chantilly Cream. These dishes were prepared to a professional standard and delivered to guests under restaurant conditions.

The Prospect Lunch programme aims to teach culinary and hospitality students first hand skills needed to work in a restaurant and gives them a taste of what to expect in a professional kitchen. The lunches are served to paying members of the public. The programme is a joint initiative between the first-year students in Food Services and Cookery and Nutrition disciplines at the college, overseen and coordinated by Culinary Instructor Shawn Ming and Hospitality Lecturer, Rui DeSa.
