Begitu pula dengan Gingerbread, kreasi bread dengan aroma khas jahe yang pembuatanya menuntut keterampilan artistik yang tinggi. Salah satu olahan gingerbread yang paling menarik adalah ginger bread house. Kepingan-kepingan kue jahe tersebut disusun sedemikian rupa didekorasi dengan icing sugar hingga membentuk bentuk rumah lengkap segala pernak-perniknya. Ini jugalah yang dipelajari oleh mahasiswa patiseri Tristar Institute Batu.

Dengan memakan waktu kurang lebih selama empat hari (19/2 – 22/2), empat miniatur rumah komplit dengan dekorasi yang juga terbuat dari produk patiseri berhasil dibuat walau dibutuhkan kesabaran dan ketelitian ekstra. Proses pembuatan yang rumit dan memakan waktu lama bukan menjadi halangan kelas patiseri untuk berkreasi membuat ginger-bread house bertema Natal karena Chef Lili, dosen kelas patiseri yang telah berkompeten sehingga dapat memberikan pengajaran dengan baik dan terarah. Nah, Anda juga tertarik membuat rumah kue jahe Anda sendiri?[ss]

Geliat industri pastiseri khususnya di Indonesia tengah bersemi. Di antara ratus bahkan ribuan kreasi pastry yang ada, muffin dan cupcake bisa jadi yang sedang naik tahta.

Secara tampilan, Muffin memiliki bentuk yang cembung ke atas. Varian small quick bread satu ini memiliki tekstur yang lebih padat jadi tak heran kalau sajian ini kerap dijadikan alternatif untuk sarapan. Penambahan fresh milk di muffin juga menambah nilai gizi dan cita rasanya.

Di sisi lain, cupcake memiliki tekstur yang jauh lebih halus karena menggunakan teknik air bubble mixer. Tampilan small cake juga sangat memanjakan visual karena dekorasi frostingnya dapat dikreasikan menjadi berbagai macam bentuk dan warna. [ss]

22 Mar 2018

Batu - Kelezatan masakan dari dataran Tiongkok memang luar biasa, buktinya Anda dapat menemukan berbagai rumah makan Tiongkok di hampir seluruh belahan dunia. Tidak salah rasanya jika Chinese Food menjadi hal yang wajib dipelajari para pembelajar kuliner, termasuk Mahasiswa Tristar Institute Kota Wisata Batu.

Minggu ketiga bulan Maret (12/3-16/3) 2018 diisi para calon chef dan pebisnis kuliner di Tristar Institute Batu dengan memelajari mengenai persiapan bahan, pengolahan menu, hingga cara penyajian Chinese Food.

DAILY EVENT: ICE CREAM
15 Mar 2018

Batu - Klasik dan tak lekang waktu, gambaran tepat untuk es krim. Sejak diciptakan ratusan tahun yang lalu, hidangan penutup ini tak membuat bosan penggemarnya. Sensasi dingin yang diberikan berpadu dengan beragam rasa yang ditambahkan mampu membuat penikmatnya bergoyang lidah. Namun pembuat es krim yang nikmat tak sebanyak jumlah peminatnya. Oleh karena itu, mahasiswa kelas patiseri Tristar Institute Batu wajib mempelajari cara pembuatan es krim dari awal untuk dapat menghasilkan kreasi es krim yang dapat dinikmati banyak orang.

Sejak Senin (12/3) sekitar 16 siswa kelas patiseri mulai menyiapkan dan mengolah bahan-bahan yang digunakan untuk membuat es krim dari bahan dasar yang berupa egg yolk, fresh cream, fresh milk hingga bahan untuk perasa. Perasa yang dipakai juga bukan sekedar perasa sintetis tapi dari bahan asli. Misalnya strawberry ice cream yang berasal dari buah stroberi segar. Stroberi yang dipakai juga sangat istimewa karena buahnya dipetik langsung dari perkebunan stroberi yang juga berada di Kota Batu. Lokasi kampus Tristar Institute Kota Wisata Batu memang terletak di daerah pegununungan yang memungkinkan untuk mendapat bahan-bahan segar dengan kualitas terbaik. Jadi rugi bukan kalau belajar masak tidak di kampus ini? [ss]



Peluang Bisnis Lezat Makanan Sehat
14 Mar 2018

Bisnis kuliner memang tengah menjadi primadona di kalangan pelaku usaha. Modal yang minimal dengan potensi hasil yang menggiurkan membuat bisnis kuliner dilirik banyak orang. Salah satu faktor penting ini menjadikan kompetisi bisnis kuliner makin ketat ke depannya. Karena hal inilah, para pelaku usaha maupun calon usahawan di bidang kuliner wajib untuk memberikan nilai jual lebih pada produknya agar meningkatkan minat konsumen.

Di sisi lain, ketika banyak pengusaha kuliner sibuk menaikan nilai jual ada hal yang sering dilupakan yaitu aspek kesehatan dan gizi produk yang akan mereka jual. Padahal jika dilihat lebih jeli aspek gizi dan kesehatan mampu menjadi salah satu nilai tambah suatu produk makanan maupun minuman. Buktinya, bisa dilihat dengan tren healthy food yang menanjak serta melonjaknya peminat beras, sayur, buah organik, garam rendah sodium, susu rendah lemak, gula jagung atau juga penyedap rasa tanpa MSG.

Meski demikian, tidak semua bisa mengolah bahan makanan sehat tersebut secara optimal. Dibutuhkan teknik memasak khusus untuk menghasilkan menu yang sehat dan bergizi tanpa perlu mengorbankan kelezatan rasa masakan. Di samping itu dalam proses pengolahan makanan dan minuman juga tidak bisa dilakukan secara sembarangan agar higenitas makanan tetap bisa terjaga.

Untuk itulah Professional Program Healthy Food hadir sebagai program keahlian pengolahan makanan dan minuman sehat dan penuh gizi. Tristar Institute Kota Batu mengemas pelatihan ini secara intensif selama 3 (tiga) bulan. Dalam jangka waktu tersebut peserta akan dibekali dengan berbagai skill dan pengetahuan mengenai:

  1. Cara mengontrol menu sesuai kebutuhan
  2. Menghitung nutrisi yang terkandung dalam makanan
  3. Mengolah makanan dan minuman dengan rasa yang nikmat dan sehat.

Professional Program Healthy Food ini sangat direkomendasikan bagi pengusaha kuliner yang ingin meningkatkan omset penjualan dan menaikkan nilai jual produk.

Seluruh petugas instalasi gizi rumah sakit ataupun petugas kesehatan pada umumnya juga sangat dianjurkan untuk mengikuti pelatihan ini, karena akan banyak manfaat yang bisa didapatkan dan diaplikasikan secara pribadi maupun secara professional.

Peserta yang mengikuti Professional Program Healthy Food akan mendapat 2 (dua) sertifikat resmi yang berupa

  1. sertifikat chef professional chef
  2. sertikat dari Persagi (Persatuan Ahli Gizi).

Selain itu semua yang mengikuti program yang ditelurkan Tristar Institute Kota Wisata Batu ini, akan mendapatkan fasilitas lengkap dari seragam chef (chef jacket), safety shoes, knife, hingga asrama. Dan yang paling penting instruktur Tristar Institute Kota Wisata Batu terdiri dari praktisi kuliner, bisnis, serta gizi yang telah berpengalaman bertahun-tahun di bidangnya. Pastikan Anda segera mendaftar pelatihan ini karena kuota terbatas. Kami juga menerima pelatihan kuliner, baking, serta patiseri bagi instansi dan perseorangan.[ss]
