NR TAFE students collaborate with top chefs for the ultimate pop-up dining experience

This weekend, top calibre chefs from Paul Iskov's Fervor will wow Broome once again with two spectacular pop-up dining experiences along the Kimberley coast. What's on the menu? A selection of exquisite native bush ingredients presented skilfully and with love on the plates of those who were lucky enough to score a ticket. Think Boab Tuber, Water Lily, Green Tree Ants, Crocodile and Bush Tomato!

If you don't remember them from their visit last year, Fervor is a team of truly talented and highly qualified chefs and front of house professionals sourced from some of WA's most on-trend venues. Owner Paul Iskov has brought the team together with a mission to showcase the oldest foods on the planet alongside the most modern techniques.

This is the third year in a row that Fervor has visited Broome and worked with NR TAFE's Commercial Cookery students to prepare for the event. Commercial Cookery Lecturer, Lisette Monsello said she is incredibly proud of the effort her students put in throughout the year and is delighted that students living regionally have this unique opportunity to gain hands on experience directly from industry professionals.

"This week at the Pearler's Shed Training Restaurant, Paul and his team spoke with the students about career paths, dedication, love of food and cooking and passion for the trade. These chefs show that with passion, life after TAFE can be rewarding. I am very excited about this opportunity for the students," Lisette said.

NR TAFE students and apprentices assisting with this weekend's events are:
Harold Biong  - Cable Beach Club Resort
Dillon Impson - The Wharf Restaurant
Mira Nguyen - Broome In-Flight Catering

NR TAFE Commercial Cookery apprentices in Karratha also had the chance to work with Fervor.

These students travel to Broome for quarterly block training and have access to lecturer support throughout the year.
