Good Food, Good Company – A DFBB Graduation Showcase

L'Rez, NYP's training restaurant, was transformed into a retro-style diner complete with sepia prints lining its walls as part of the Graduation Showcase for the Diploma in Food & Beverage Business (DFBB) students held on Aug 4.

Family and friends of DFBB students were in for a night of culinary pleasure. Already skilled in food preparation and food service, the students took it a step further and presented guests with an innovative 8-course degustation menu complete with wine pairing. 

Working on a 'mod-Sing' theme, students infused traditional local cuisine with a modern twist. As L'Rez was recently granted a liquor license, students worked with a sommelier to complement their dishes with different wines and mocktails.

The event ended off with a personalised touch - students served the final dish to their loved ones who supported them in their journey.
