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 2018.

We have a lot going on this semester with many 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 À La Carte dinners during August and September.

As part of our students’ ‘Spanish Project’, we will be holding a one off Tapas Night with Spanish food and wine. We will be offering a selection of sharing plates throughout the night, plus we will have a small selection of Spanish wines on sale.

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 with a New Zealand twist – the culmination of the Level 5 Cookery students work over the year.

There is also an option to match wines with the menu. This has now been running for 5 years and has proven to be very popular, with nights sold out weeks in advance. So, get in quickly to avoid disappointment.

We will be running a Quiz night in late September with a nineties theme. We will have great food served throughout the night plus prizes for the best-dressed team. This quiz night is very popular, so start organizing your team – and your costumes – six per team.

The new intake of Professional Cookery students will run a two week block of Christmas themed Bistro lunches in November.

We will be running two Bake Days in Semester 2 – one by our Level 4 Bakery students – focusing on breads, cakes and biscuits. The other will be run by our Level 5 Patisserie students with a focus on cakes, pastries, pies, artisan breads and a selection of both international and local sweet treats.

On The Terrace Café will be providing counter service lunches Tuesday to Thursday through our Café Service programme. The students will be serving a fabulous selection of café style foods, great espresso coffee and tempting desserts. These items range from $4 – $8. There is no need to book for these lunches unless you have a party of ten or more people. Breakfasts will also be available Wednesday and Thursday mornings in late October.

We are also offering café style lunches most Fridays in Term 3 only. These are run by our Trades Academy students. These students are still at school, but come to EIT every Friday to study various trade related careers. Please note that these lunches are not licensed.

Hastings Centre Pop Up Café. Our new centre opened in May of this year and we are proud to be delivering a Café programme out of this centre. We will be offering takeaway coffees and delicious café food at various times throughout the semester.
