BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
The food and beverage is often times what people remember most about an event! It has to be the right selection, served at the right time, the right way! After taking this course you will be able to identify the food and beverage requirements for an event. Students will learn about menu selection, service style selection, sustainable catering concepts, procurement (sourcing and selecting) as well as basic catering operations and meal plans that reflect client needs and event goals. Using a simulated event, the course also focuses on licensing, alcohol services and related risks, sanitation and food safe requirements. Trends such as sustainable menu planning/ procurement, food and beverage presentation, dietary requirements and restrictions are also introduced and explored.
This course isn't currently offered through BCIT Part-time Studies. Please check back next term or subscribe to receive email updates.
