NMIT hospitality roars into the 20s

23 Mar 2013

On 7 June 2012 NMIT's (Northern Institute of TAFE) second year Advanced Diploma of Hospitality students will present an evening of fine food and entertainment based on the theme 'The Roaring 20s'.

NMIT's award winning Hospitality and Tourism Department will sweep you into the sights, sounds and tastes of the 1920s. The event will be decorated in a 'speakeasy' style dominated by black, white and red.

Tim Haronga, an NMIT Hospitality Teacher, together with the Student Organising Committee Leader Jessica Lawton, are assisting students to coordinate the event. Tim says “The students are really enthusiastic - they won't hear of it not being a great night. It's an opportunity for guests to get a little dressed up if they wish, to be somewhere that looks beautiful and enjoy great music, delicious food and wonderful service - and all for only $70 per person.”

As well as swing jazz from the four-piece Gangster Boys, the night will feature cabaret-style entertainers from the ARC Theatre Group roaming between tables performing their freewheeling show. Another highlight will be the food - a modern take on 1920s classics including mouth-watering appetisers such as prawn Marie Rose, entrees like oysters Rockefeller and mains including chicken galantine. There will also be a tasting plate of three desserts: bombe Alaska, chocolate mousse and fruit flan. Each course includes matched wines (thanks to Mt Toolleen Winery and Twisted Vine Fine Wines, Preston), while elegant 1920s cocktails will be available at reasonable prices.
