The Food Specialisation course is based on two topics; Nutrition and International Foods, and we have prepared some of the best recipes so far! We make delicious new recipes every week, with some of my favourites being the Burrito Bowl, Bliss Balls and the Aussie Meat Pie. The assessments are always interesting, especially when we can pick our own recipes to cook!
