Short courses - cooking courses at TAFE SA
Food presentation and the provision of optimum nutrition are just some of the subjects included in TAFE SA’s new short course which has been developed in response to industry needs to upskill aged care cooks and caterers.
High profile food identity Maggie Beer has been pushing for an increase in training for several years now and the ‘Enhancing your cookery skills and nutrition knowledge in aged care’ has been created in conjunction with the Maggie Beer Foundation.
TAFE SA and cookery lecturer Jan Koerner, points out Government funding has helped the children’s services sector in this way, but until now the aged sector’s needs have not been addressed.
Aged care industry chef Katie Otto together with TAFE SA’s nutrition lecturer Alison Jeffs, will deliver the course. They will provide instruction on planning and evaluating meals and menus that meet dietary guidelines and specific nutrition care plans such as for people on texture-modified diets or who follow cultural or religious diets.
This short course will provide the knowledge to support nutritious, innovative methods of food service to our ageing community.
With a hands on approach you will learn from a current chef/ dietary coordinator in the aged care industry practical methods of food presentation and how to provide optimum nutrition.
The course will develop your skills and knowledge in the selection and planning of balanced meals, general menu planning principles and the development, modification and evaluation of menus within dietary guidelines.
We will explore the special nutritional and dietary needs of a number of different client groups, including at risk and cultural groups and assess both meals and menus for their suitability for texture modification, using relevant guidelines.
