Bachelor of Culinary Management Programme from the School of Food Studies and Gastronomy had recently organized an Online Masterclass Series titled "Plant-based Protein as Meat Replacement". The Masterclass Series was hosted and moderated by Chef Nadzri Mohd Alim, Taylor’s University and presented by Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Taylor's University and Executive Chef Rene Johari, Double-Tree by Hilton Dubai, Business Bay on 6th October 2021.
The objective of the masterclass is to uncover plant-based protein as meat replacement for menu creation and development. Chef Rene conducted a live demonstration of a dish using plant-based protein. This event has given an exposure to students and lecturers. We received very good responses and questions at the end of the session. We had 110 participants, from a mixture of students, hoteliers, restaurant owners, and lecturers.
