It was a triumphant return for the student-run bistro program at Samuel Robertson Technical (SRT) this week, with reservations for the three-course meals selling out in only 10 minutes.

Chef Mike Steele is once again leading the Professional Cooking Level 1 program, which has 13 students this year who are responsible for putting out more than 100 three-course meals each week.

“They have been hard at work learning the new skills required to be beginning cooks in the industry,” said Steele.

“We had a soft opening last week for the teachers and assistants, and this week is our first week of opening the Bistro to the public.”

Each week there’s an entirely new lineup of food, with the menu posted on the program’s Facebook page at 5:45 p.m. every Friday.
