In the Kitchen…

Last week (wk3) we made Yellow Curry Paste, which we used to make Vegetarian Thai yellow curry, with either rice sticks or rice and we also made our own Roti Bread.
This week we made an Indian breakfast pancake called Dosa, which we filled with a yummy curried potato mixture.

Cafe update

This week in the Community cafe we welcomed two new team members. Nick and Chloe have now joined the cafe team and will work alongside the rest of the crew, preparing yummy lunches, making delicious coffee and perhaps more importantly develop their team working skills and self confidence.

It’s week we served corn fitter with a tomato and avocado salsa, open roasted chicken salad sandwich and vegetable quinoa salad.

Be sure to check out next week’s menu here early next week.


Snags, muffins and a trio of dips

This week in the cafe our wonderful team worked with Nat and Tanya to prepare a scrumptious lunch.

We start each day in the cafe by filling the condiments, drink fridge, count the till float and then it’s time to cook.

This week we made Turkish breads, sausage, fennel and coleslaw wraps and a trio of dips. The dips were carrot, beet root and yoghurt.

Working in our community cafe is a great opportunity  to build our team working skills and customer service skills.
