CASE STUDY

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Simona Si­doti, 21, of Cromer is a third-year ap­pren­tice at the Echo Culi­nary In­sti­tute. She is work­ing in the two-hat­ted res­tau­rant Mo­mo­fuku Seiobo. Q. Why did you study the course? And what did you like about it? A. When I topped the year at school in Hos­pi­tal­ity and Food Tech­nol­ogy, I knew this was some­thing I wanted to pur­sue. As one of 10 orig­i­nal in­ductees into The Star’s Echo Culi­nary In­sti­tute, I’ve worked across four pro­duc­tion kitchens, and in the mul­ti­ple butch­ery and pas­try kitchens. Such a broad view is in­valu­able. Q. What are your plans for the fu­ture?

A. Af­ter I grad­u­ate I’d love to fol­low my pas­sion to be a pas­try chef. Q. What ad­vice do you have for oth­ers?

A. Be open to new ex­pe­ri­ences. Be flex­i­ble. Love what you do. Find a men­tor.
