School of Food Studies and Gastronomy (SFSG) invited the alumni Chef Gunawan Wu, who is currently Sweet Responsible Ambassador for Lakanto Australia, Chocolate Ambassador for Nestlé Professional Australia and also Chef Instructor at Scoffed Cooking School to conduct a half-day Dessert Plating Workshop with Bachelor of Culinary Management and Bachelor of Patisserie Arts students.
More than 20 students participated in this workshop to learn the advanced plating design with various edible components. The workshop aimed to introduce students to the latest plating techniques, garnishing and experimenting with fusion flavours in dessert making.
In addition, Chef Gunawan Wu presented his new signature menu "Coconut Agogo", a combination of Coconut Mousse, Ginger Crumbs, Passion Fruit Curd and Mango Brulé.
In this workshop, students not only explored the skills and techniques but were also given the opportunity to engineer their plating design. This session was also to encourage, motivate and develop student interest to prepare them to be wholesome graduates to suit industry demands.
