Coffee training and fermentation techniques were the two activities for this week’s training.  Making 3 types of pickles with the head chef of e5 Bakehouse Marcella.

The Japanese nuka bran pickles, sour beets and cucumber relish.

We tried some of Marcella’s already made pickles, Kimchi and sour carrot as a sample and the girls were offered to come back in 6 weeks to try the pickles they made.

Continuing the second half of the day we had barista training with the café manager Edward and Jean.

Coffee timeThe lesson was about the different types of coffees and how to make a perfect shot and steaming milk.
