An enthusiastic group of Gisborne Chip operators attended some great group training sessions recently and learnt everything there is to know about cooking the best quality, lowest fat chips!
The Best Practice Frying Training was held at SuperGrans in town with the help of Community Dietician Nicki Mathieson from Tairawhiti District Health. We held a morning session and an afternoon session – which included both a seminar and a practical cooking demonstration.
Operators were shown the difference between how small changes in temperature can make a huge impact on the quality, taste and fat content of their chips. They were really interesting in hearing about our ‘Approved Oils’ and why some are better than others, but particularly how certain oils can help them save money!
For those interested who were unable to attend the session – Kate took them each through a one-on-one training session at a time that suited them.
The Chip Group would like to congratulate all of the twenty five individuals who completed training from the following stores:
- Makaraka Fish Shop
- Real Fresh Ltd.
- Lytton West Fish Shop
- Blue Wave Food Bar
- Elgin Fish & Chips
- Adi’s Fish & Chips
- Everest Fish Shop
- The Lunch Bar
- Huxley Road Dairy
- Gisborne Cosmopolitan Club
- Captain Morgan’s
- Golden Crust Bakery
If you are in Gisborne this Summer be sure to support those shops who are working hard to produce healthier, lower fat chips!
