Preserves, and Fundraising @ Dio
This course provides students with an opportunity to work with a client when developing a prototype preserve that meets an identified need. They will learn: how to create their own recipes; how to develop a production sequence through testing and trialling; develop confidence and competence with practical equipment; and investigate and apply practical techniques and processes to produce a preserve.
The course also offers students an opportunity to develop and manufacture a food product suitable for fundraising, for a specific client.
