The other day I was kindly invited by the Suzuki Gakuen Culinary Institute in Shizuoka City to visit their Restaurant, Lilium, which also serves as a cafe, where all the food and service is insured by the students of the Institute!
Note: Do check the Restaurant opening hours as they greatly vary according o the Institute schedule at:
LILIUM (only on reservations for lunch and dinner) (Japanese site)
The concept of the Restaurant is that all the food, drinks and service are taken care of by the students under the direction of Chefs Kuroda and his assistant chef Nakajima. Therefore the service is also done by students who must learn all aspects of running a restaurant!
View of the salle de restaurant.
Spotless clean and no smoking allowed!
The cleaning is also done by the students of course!
Like in any restaurant there is cashier and accounting work to be done, the more complicated as guests can pay by credit card!
Do not forget to have a look at confectionery being sold on site and prize-winning masterpieces!
The kitchen, certainly a crowded place, but spotless clean!
The orders of the day!
Some of the ingredients f the day!
The student chefs busy at work!
All products, vegetables, fruits, meat, fish and others are contracted with regular distributors and farms to ensure highest quality and freshness!
Meat dish being prepared!
I just love baked onions!
It just happened to be the last lunch served until April as the school was going to take a recess before the new Scholar year start!
Now, what was on offer?
Plenty as you can see!
Thon maison en Salade Nicoise!
A very hearty starter with home-made tuna nicoise salad, poached egg and plenty of greens!
Saute de poulet en persillade, sauce chasseur!
Roasted herb chicken, sauce chasseur, potato mousseline and baked onion!
Coconuts blanc-manger with its strawberry sherbet!
Naturally with tea or coffee!
Full satisfaction insured!
Incidentally I’m planning to report on the students festival held on February 18th!
