Taj Gateway Hotel and Amika Hotel, Madurai have given an opportunity for our students to do outdoor catering (ODC). The Department of Marine Catering and Hotel Management sent 33 students from second and first year for ODC programme from 30.12.21 to 31.12.21. It was a great platform for the students to gain knowledge about New Year theme decoration, bar arrangement in banquet hall, Service of liquor, setting of buffet in cocktail party, and different cuisine food preparation techniques. This opportunity motivated and gave hands-on experience to the students.
