It was a memorable experience for me to be able to organize a High Tea for our teachers. We planned everything – from the food preparation to the decorations for the tables that represent our cultures.
I was allowed to be the head chef for my group and I was honored to be able to guide my group, and think about some tasty dishes that we could make for the High Tea.
What I liked about this experience was the diversity that we had from the hospitality class, that made us able to produce foods from all around the world, that represented each different culture. The interesting part was combining those different cultures into a dish. It was challenging at first, but it was worth it once we finished all of it.
From this experience, I learned that communication is very important in group work, along with time management to make all the dishes and present them in a short time.
