The Oaklands Community Association would like to officially thank Professor Dave Pritchard and his Camosun College Hospitality Management Team for their diligence, care, and amazing work at this year’s Oaklands Oktoberfest! Dave and his team of stellar students mastered the culinary crusade of preparing the entirety of our Bavarian Feast for the 100 hungry attendees. Dave sourced the ingredients and with his team, created the Oktoberfest meal from scratch – boiling the Bratwurst (the Whole Beast) in locally craft beer (Dark Matter – Hoyne Brewing Co) then charred on the grill, crafting the homemade potato salad and green salad with care, and plating every meal to perfection. The meal was delicious, incredibly filling, and a great taste of German culture with an island twist! Moreover, the volunteer team of students carried themselves with the upmost of professionalism, attentive to patrons needs, and were all smiles the entire evening! Having Dave and his team’s help at Oktoberfest was such a contribution to the event’s success, one we could not have accomplished without their dedication and incredible generosity! THANK YOU!
