Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café

Scholars Restaurant and On The Terrace Café @ Scholars welcome you to join us for our productions in Semester 2 2020.

It has been a strange year so far, and we are hoping to make up for a few of the productions we lost in Semester One during COVID. We have alot going on this semester with any different opportunities to see our students in action – highlighting their different programmes and skills.

Our returning Level 4 Chef students showcase their skills in a series of A la Carte dinners during August and September, plus will run a week of Christmas Dinners in late November.

As part of our students’ French Project’, we will be holding two six course French Degustation Dinners with French food and wine. Unfortunately, we cannot cater for any special dietary requirements during these two dinners.

Our Level 5 Diploma in Cookery and Professional Food and Beverage students will end their year with a fabulous Degustation dinner during November. This year we are offering modern contemporary dishes based on the produce and suppliers from Hawke’s Bay – the culmination of the Level 5 Cookery students work over the year. There is also an option
to match wines with the menu. Unfortunately, we cannot cater for any special dietary requirements during these diners. This has now been running for six years and has proven to be very popular, with nights sold out weeks in advance. So, get in quickly to avoid disappointment.
