RRC Polytech’s Vibrant Participation in Holiday Alley 2023

November 23, 2023

Selkirk hosted the Holiday Alley festival this past weekend, a vibrant blend of art, culture, and community spirit. RRC Polytech was a key sponsor and participant in the Soup Cook-off and Holiday Crafternoon activities.

The Soup Cook-off: A Culinary Showcase

RRC Polytech’s involvement in the Soup Cook-off was a standout feature of the festival. As a main sponsor, RRC Polytech showcased the talents and skills of its Culinary Arts program. This event was not just a competition but a celebration of flavours and a demonstration of culinary expertise. The cook-off attracted over 200 visitors, offering them a taste of unique and delicious soups. This provided excellent exposure for the campus and highlighted the culinary program’s capabilities and creativity.

Students from RRC Polytech’s First Year Basic Food Prep course, supported by Chefs Jordan Carlson, Jean-Marc Blanc and Gordon Bailey, pulled an impressive second-place win.

In the culinary program, soup is an important teaching tool because it encourages the learning of many different techniques, such as roasting, sautéing, thickening by vegetable, garnish making, knife skills, and stock making, as well as the bulk production of an item.

Holiday Crafternoon: Fostering Creativity and Culture

The Holiday Crafternoon activities, sponsored by RRC Polytech, were a highlight for many festival-goers. These crafting sessions included wreath making and snowflake beading, offering a blend of traditional and modern crafts. These activities were fun, engaging, and educational, highlighting RRC Polytech’s commitment to promoting cultural awareness and artistic expression. The Crafternoon successfully brought together the community, students, and faculty to celebrate creativity and holiday spirit.

RRC Polytech’s Impact on Holiday Alley

RRC Polytech Interlake Campus’s involvement in Holiday Alley went beyond sponsoring events. The participation in these activities greatly contributed to the Festival’s success. By engaging with the community through culinary arts and crafts, RRC Polytech displayed its role as an integral part of the Selkirk community and its cultural events.

We eagerly anticipate what the City of Selkirk will bring to Holiday Alley in the future.
