On the last night of the University of Technology (UTech) School of Hospitality & Tourism Management's International Cuisine Cucina Italiana (Italian Cuisine) was presented.

Guests arrived in large numbers to see simple, but detailed decor that dedicated to the Goddess of Love, Venus, which was amazingly imitated by the human 'statue', Abbigale Campbell.

Despite, the preparation process being "easy", the team did not a second to spare as they worked hard to serve their guests effectively and efficiently.

The menu listed deliciously described dishes with a variety of differing flavours — and if the guests' faces were any indication — had them salivating to experience a taste of Italy.

The dining area of Lillian's Restaurant at UTech held its maximum capacity throughout the entire night as the marketing skills of the team was well executed.

Overall, the turnout for the night was overwhelming and the team got "good comments from the customers" said, student executive Chef Brian Sterling, speaking on his team's efforts.

Sadly, the international cuisine series had to come to an end.

TEENchef believes this is a creative and effective way for the students to execute their studies in a practical environment, getting more hands-on experience in the working world.

On behalf of The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, TEENchef would like to thank all the persons who dined during the series, and the sponsors, who gave their invaluable support.
