WIT is delighted to welcome 12 culinary students and two lecturers (Todd White and Chris Bladowski) to WIT for two weeks to study Irish and culture.

While in Waterford the students will also explore the city and county and discover some of our artisan food producers.

The visiting students are from South Georgia (Albany) and North Georgia Technical Colleges where they are studying culinary arts. While they are at WIT they will learn to cook traditional Irish and regional dishes and look at how they can be modernised, they will also receive classes in Pastry and bread making, fish and shellfish cookery.

Each Student will receive a certificate of participation on the programme. The course director is Tony Barry, lecturers teaching on the programme are Michael Quinn, Judith Hickey and Lorain Walsh.

Each of the students will spend two days working in local restaurants and hotels to experience working in an Irish culinary establishment.

The group will visit West Cork over two days to look at a number of artisan producers. The group will also be introduced to the art of seaweed and land foraging.
