CERT III COMMERCIAL COOKERY

Bryonie has worked in hospitality for the past 20 years as a restaurant manager, food and beverage manager and wedding and event planning and management.

In 2010 to adopt a healthier lifestyle, Bryonie started research into disease prevention. A major part of her holistic approach was food and diet, so to gain a solid foundation she completed a Commercial Cookery Certificate 3 course.

Her next challenge was becoming a mother. With her son’s future in mind, her changes to lifestyle including, nutrition, diet and exercise, enabled her to reduce her weight by over 40 kilograms. “Bryonie has an incredible mindset. She is inspiring and an amazing person to work with. I also love her sense of fun and humour.” says Tracey Cotterell.

Bry’s role today, teaching in class and running the schools busy kitchen combines her front of house skills with her love of food. Bryonie says “I believe it’s imperative to know how to cook food from scratch. If we are aware of what’s in the food we eat and where our food comes from, this essential skill enables everyone to have a choice regarding their own eating habits”.
