If you're into food and enjoy cooking for others, why not make a career of it?
Jayden Winterburn, National Certificate in Hospitality/Diploma in Professional Chef Practice Graduate
"I wanted a qualification that can take me anywhere in the world. If you are thinking about study at EIT, go for it! Nothing should hold you back from what you want to do with your life".
I started my career in a five star resort in Noosa, Queensland in 1990. I went on to cook in a fine dining seafood restaurant in Sydney, then completed several seasons in an Australian ski chalet, before returning to Napier. I have been teaching culinary arts at the Eastern Institute of Technology since 1999. I have a passion for teaching people the craft of cooking and enjoy using the high quality produce available in Hawkes Bay and using modern trends in gastronomy for our culinary arts students.
