What's left in the kitchen? The grade 8's got a chance to learn how to cook a meal for themselves by learning to make a pasta dish from scratch with whatever is left in the fridge (el cheapo mccallum). They also learned about not overcooking veg. And noodles to ensure a perfect dish. Big shout out to the groups that tried to show presentation plating. They were rewarded with being on my world famous website!
With a 70 minute time limit, the class was given a secret ingredient in which to make something with. The secret ingredient this time was pizza dough. With no help from the teacher, the students were able to come up with some amazing creations including calzones, pizza pockets, cinnamon buns and even an asian stir fry. Well done to this creative class!
It's been a few years now since I was back in the 'kitchen' at school. Looking forward to being a Totem and excited to be back teaching in Canada. I will be posting in this section all the action happening in the classes. This semester will be ADST 8 as well as Food Studies 11. Be patient as I update the website to provide the most current information for my classes.
