A Valuable “Quest” for 40!

For 40 Food & Beverage (F&B) students from Tunku Abdul Rahman University College, Five Best Skill Training Centre and the Sunway, Gombak and Kuala Lumpur campuses of CQ-TEC, the chance to participate in the Centre’s inaugural TAP Talent Quest 2014 was an opportunity to learn and refine their skills in five areas i.e., Themed Table Settings, Barista, Flambe, Mocktails and Cocktails.
Conceptualised by team members currently undergoing the 18-month internal Talent Acceleration Programme (TAP), the month-long corporate social responsibility project aimed at providing hands-on experience to some of the many young F&B talents currently pursuing their studies at local hospitality schools, saw the institutions nominate a maximum three students for each of the five categories. The chosen ones then went through three training sessions with the Centre’s award-winning culinary team before vying for gold, silver and bronze medals in a final event.
