The spice of life

The spice of life

On Wednesday 30th April, Tameside College Bakery, Confectionery and Catering students discovered the delicate, diverse and dazzling array of herbs and spices from around the world when they were visited by Stockport based, food ingredients importer, blender and packer, EHL Ingredients.

EHL Ingredients presented an educational workshop to the College students about the history, classification and uses of herbs and spices from around the world. The students were very keen to be involved in the session. The knowledge they gained will help them continue to produce more challenging and spicy dishes whilst studying their course at Tameside College.

Tameside College tutor and chef, Paul Yau commented; “This was a great opportunity for our students to learn about international herbs and spices first hand from an industry expert and the session was really engaging and interactive. It was a real honour for us to welcome Debadutta and his presentation really inspired the students. We’re planning some more activities where they can put their new knowledge into practice in the classroom and the demo kitchens so there should be some spicy dishes on their way.”

Debadutta also commented; “It was great to meet the students and teach the next generation of chefs about the world of herbs and spices. They were a great group to work with and clearly very talented and interested in this area of the food industry. They really got involved with the session and we wish them all the best with their studies.”
