Treat yourself: Pop into Casino’s new pop-up cafe
A POP-UP cafe in Casino’s Centre St is giving TAFE students the chance to take what they have learnt in the classroom into a real-life situation.
North Coast TAFE teacher David Delaney is a qualified Bundjalung chef who is guiding his students through their cookery and hospitality certificate course.
“A lot of my teaching is observation,” Mr Delaney said.
“They require 40 hours work experience.”
The cafe provides that experience and the students need the community to come in and order a milkshake or sandwich so the students can practise their skills.
“Hospitality courses are very popular here,” Mr Delaney said.
This is the second year the course has run in Casino.
“The more practical experience the students get, the better,” Mr Delaney said.
“Feedback is important.”
The cafe is on the site of the former Mias Coffee Shop near the Charcoal Inn.
It is open Monday to Friday from 9am until 3pm, and the students plan to entice customers with delicious home-baked scones and popular old-fashioned spiders.
