This is what you call breakfast television, VCC-style.

On Thursday, Sept. 5, Vancouver Community College’s hands-on training programs were featured on City TV’s Breakfast Television for Back to School Week.

Dozens of students and faculty pitched in to help host Thor Diakow get skilled in baking and culinary arts, while showing off their own talents and offering tips to viewers.

Mouth-watering recipes featured on the program included chocolate covered strawberries, mango mousse cake, traditional omelette and bacon breakfast, and open-faced pizza sandwiches with tons of fresh toppings.

Diakow said, “That’s what I love about VCC and the culinary program, is that everything is all handcrafted, fresh and ready-to-go.”

Students in VCC’s hospitality programs programs get real world training. Their classrooms are our Downtown campus cafeterias, restaurants and bakery, all open to the public.
