Staff, student and customer feedback.

The customers enjoyed the experience of something different as well as the healthy approach in making the dishes. They also enjoyed the variety of dishes including the range of different ingredients used for them. It was a challenge to the students (and the lecturer) to cook without using staple ingredients such as eggs, butter, milk and cream.
