Culinary Experience

The Colaiste Ide Culinary students operate a range of themed restaurants throughout the course of their study. Themes include a diverse range of concepts from Disney, Carnival and a Food Festival theme to Hawaiian Luau, Mexican, Asian and a range of other appealing themes from around the world.  The themes often involve the provision of games, prizes, "mocktails" and a restaurant / buffet experience.

The student experience involves every aspect involved in the operation of a restaurant, including marketing the restaurant, research, documentation, sourcing of suitable ingredients and food stuff, preparation, cooking, presentation and final delivery of food in a customer-oriented restaurant environment.

This activity proves invaluable to students in translating the application of the experience into the real world.

Places on our fulltime PLC programmes are available free of charge to VTOS applicants
