PBRS trainee Chefs fire-up the hot plate in support of the Auckland Seafood Festival


The Seafood Festival which was held over the Auckland Anniversary weekend, from the 24th – 26th of January, was a huge success drawing in over 15,000 seafood loving visitors. It lived up to its goal of providing a variety of flavoursome fresh New Zealand seafood, fun and entertainment for all the family. The Cornell Education Group, which trains chefs and hospitality staff for the growing industry, injected over fourteen of its energetic culinary volunteers to help with the logistics of feeding such a massive number of foodies.

Cornell, through the help of iCareer, helped to staff the popular venue’s seafood stalls which includes the Scampi stall with its delicious high grade product for the discerning customers. They also worked on the mussel Fritter Barge, Salmon Plank BBQ stall with its special cedar smoked technique to wow the customer’s taste buds and lastly the Bluff Oyster stalls that are always a great delight each year.

Brian Batbatan one of the trainees chefs from Cornell comments “it has been such a wonderful experience to work with the organisers on the food stall as I got to cook with great people and to taste some very special dishes”.

This has been another great opportunity for the professional Education Provider to engage with the industry in a fun and supportive way – see you all there 2016!


NB : iCareer a department in Cornell helped to coordinate with the organises to source staff for the stalls – if you need hospitality staff for your business, feel free to contact us at
