In this week’s episode, Geoff is talking to Karmin Poulish who was Finalist in the 2021 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards for SA.
Karmin Poulish is an apprentice at Hentley Farm Restaurant. Karmin experienced mental health issues and bullying that led to her transfer to St. Patrick’s Technical College, where she completed SACE and Certificate II in Cookery. She has completed extra work experience in the hospitality industry, a Beginner’s Cake Decorating Course, and Le Cordon Blue’s French Breakfast Pastry Course and Career Residential Course. She has volunteered in the kitchen of Tasting Australia. Karmin won a place in the Proud To Be A Chef competition and will travel to Melbourne in September 2021 to learn from Australia’s best chefs and compete for an international scholarship. She currently works at Hentley Farm running the pastry section.
In this episode:
- We hear how cooking with her Mum from the age of two, gave Karmin a love of cooking
- We learnt how parsley and tenacity got Karmin her first trial which led to her apprenticeship and now she is running the pastry section at Hentley Farm
- Karmin’s advice to keep pushing through hard times is to have a daily shower, to figuratively wash the worries away and keep to a daily routine
