On the 18th of October 2017 Captivators events stage 1 Diploma of Event Management students, held the National Nutritional Week Lunch. This was part of our functions subject on behalf of Jan Watson our client. The lunch was held at the Angliss restaurant 555 Latrobe street Melbourne beginning at 12pm. On the day of the function we were extremely lucky to have Judy as our Operational teacher and her hospitality team to assist us on the day as the FOH team to serve food and set up the room.
National Nutritional Week’s theme this year was try for 5 meaning try and add more vegetables into your daily diet. To show how easy it is to add more vegetables to meal was shown through the entrée and main for the day. By taking a standard Angliss food package, we were able to discuss with the chef to add the more vegetables without changing the overall feel to the food being served. Which was done successfully and at the end of the function many people commenting on the food.
Our Sponsor for the day was VIC Strawberries who donated strawberries to be placed on the table for the customers to eat between meals. We also had strawberries to create a complimentary mocktail for guest to enjoy before their desserts were served. Vic strawberries also provided a book mark and a recipe to place on the table to provide more information about themselves and what they could create with strawberries.
We would like to say a big thank-you to the farmers and growers of VIC Strawberries for supporting the students with their new season produce.
