Good news.
We have managed to go remote with our NZQA fulltime courses! NZSFWLive is our new online learning platform where our tutors live-stream their classes to students at home. The cookery students have been supplied with ingredients, and in some cases, bowls, trays, sieves and pots, so that they watch the demonstration and then prepare it themselves at home. They then upload a photo of what’s cooked. We are using Google Classrooms and Hangouts to connect.
Here is Chef Finn preparing a cheese soufflé. Click here for the recipe to have a go yourself.

During the #lockdown our premises will remain closed but you can contact us on admin@foodandwine.co.nz
