STU­DENTS at St Clare’s School got an in­sight into what hap­pens in a high-pres­sure kitchen, as well as some real life tips.

The Lathlain-based Cur­ricu­lum and Reen­gage­ment in Ed­u­ca­tion school brought in Clancy’s Fish Bar ex­ec­u­tive chef Ash­ley Ryan for two days of work­shops on Fe­bru­ary 22 and 23.

A dozen stu­dents sliced and diced veg­eta­bles and learnt tech­niques in the kitchen.

The ex­pe­ri­enced chef has been work­ing in the in­dus­try for about 10 years and has pre­vi­ously worked at Hy­att Re­gency in Perth.

“It felt good to show the girls some skills and tech­niques that I use in the kitchen,” he said.

“We used healthy in­gre­di­ents like pota­toes, car­rots and to­ma­toes and I showed them the right way to use knives.

“I hope it opens the girls’ eyes to what hap­pens in kitchens. I think the girls en­joyed it too be­cause they were ask­ing a lot of ques­tions.

“The bonus is that stu­dents now have en­hanced skills that they can use in ev­ery­day liv­ing.”

Stu­dent El­hanna Glock said the ses­sions were ben­e­fi­cial and would help her in her own ca­reer.

“To learn from a chef like Ash­ley can only be good,” she said.­mu­ni­ d465817
