She stated that the women were educated on kitchen dressing code, hygiene and preparation of delicious meals at a low cost.
“Everybody wants a well managed kitchen,” said Nyambura who is a medic by profession but sells food and beverages in Nyeri town on part time basis.
The trainer, Charles Gakuu who is the managing director of the institute, urged the women to look for job opportunities in the hospitality field by setting up own businesses.
“There has been no commercial aspect in food production industry which is very open to create jobs, alternative livelihoods and revenue,” said Gakuu who also decryied that women have shunned away from the cooking business.
After the training, Gakuu said there will be minimum wastage of food amongst Nyeri women as they were taught on economic and systematic cooking procedures.
In a bid to campaign for self employment in food production, Gakuu pointed out that he had organised a one-week training for High School leavers to sensitise them on careers available in the hospitality industry.
“Hospitality skills can be applied anywhere because it is a universal course. Most high class hotels in Kenya are owned by foreigners,” he asserted.
