For a decade teens at Southland Boys' High School have been cooking up a storm.

This year marks the 10th anniversary for the high school's Tryline Cafe, started by teacher Scott Richardson.

This year, a class of year 12 boys have whipped up a menu including chicken carbonara, lamb backstrap, steak sandwich and salmon with salad for the cafe, which opened yesterday. It will be open for eight weeks.

Liam Calder, 16, said the experience of designing and organising a cafe was rewarding and gave an industry insight.

Richardson said: "They are learning all those good restaurant skills but the big one for the young men is actually the talking and communicating with customers."
