Teaching the Teachers in Taiwan

USHBC cooperated with the (American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) and Tunghai University in Taichung (Central Taiwan) on a one day training seminar (August 31, 2018) for culinary teachers in the region.

The concept: Train the trainers about US blueberries for hotel and restaurant professionals.

They will train students who will be the workforce as friends of blueberry!

 

Executive Chef from Taiwan hotel chain demonstrates US blueberries to teachers and trainers from throughout the Taichung region.   These teachers influence hundreds of students each year who enter the hotel and restaurant profession.   Now they are experts on fresh and frozen blueberries.

 

Mandy Chen aka. “Blueberry Mandy” starts things out with an overview of US blueberries.

 

Next, executive chef demonstrates making superb desserts with blueberries including plating and presentation.

 

Many thanks to the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) especially Cleo Fu, a longtime booster of blueberries!   Also thanks to the Department of Hospitality Management at Tunghai University in Taichung as well as the Department of Animal Sciences and Biotechnology (Food Science Department).
