Kitchen tools donation

A donation upgrading the tools of the Culinary Arts Program will enable the Maasai chef students to learn modern methods and equipment

The Culinary Arts Program at Karen Blixen Camp provides an 18-month course to 18-25 year-old students of the local Maasai who seek a career in the culinary arts. Graduates are prepared for positions as chef or sous chef in camps and restaurants in Kenya. Modern equipment is therefore essential for the Program.

Now camp guests have donated funds for the Trust´s Educational Initiative and the Culinary Arts Program. The donation has now been used for new kitchen tools.

Headteacher Benedict Walubengo is excited about the donation:

– With the kitchen tools we received recently from the Karen Blixen Camp Trust, the students couldn’t be more excited on how easy their work will be especially during the pastry lessons as equipment like dough mixers will cut the amount of time they would normally use in mixing dough for pastries like cakes and biscuits. Blenders too have been needful equipment especially in preparing soups in the kitchen.

With modern methods and equipment being implemented in most kitchen departments in camps and lodges around the country, prior knowledge of equipment use will be the edge the students and the school need to continue offering best and top quality training to the future chefs.
