TAFE NSW students and teachers are encouraging the Orange community to experience the culinary creations and exceptional service of the Dharra Ngurang training restaurant during Orange F.O.O.D Week.  

As part of the festivities of Orange F.O.O.D Week, TAFE NSW Orange Certificate III Commercial Cookery, Certificate III in Bakery and Certificate II, III and IV Hospitality students will offer, a four-course local menu matched with Angullong wines with live entertainment on Tuesday 13 April. 

TAFE NSW Head Teacher of Tourism and Hospitality Amanda Glassop said it was exciting for the students to be part of such a popular food event in the Orange region, particularly as the event celebrates 30 years.  

“The menu will pay tribute to the fabulous produce available in the Central West and will be matched with Angullong wines,” Ms Glassop said. 

“There is no experience substitute for a full-service dining room with paying customers and real-time demands to prepare students for life in the dynamic hospitality industry.” 

Dharra Nugurang is a fully licensed restaurant and is an essential component of ensuring cookery and hospitality graduates are job-ready. 

“Tables are set for ten people, so why not make a night out with family and friends and enjoy all that the region has to offer,” Ms Glassop said. 

Tickets are $120 per person and the event will be held at the TAFE NSW Dharra Nugurang training restaurant from 5.30pm – 9.30pm. 

Tickets can be purchased through the Orange F.O.O.D Week event page.
