News from the Secondary Food Tech Room
It's been another delicious week in the secondary food room with Year 11 students completing a variety of outstanding dishes from different countries, as part of their coursework. I have seen tacos, toad in the hole, chicken egg fried rice and lasagne produced, but sadly I'm not expected to taste them!
Year 10 caterers have been producing their own pasta and stuffing with tarragon chicken and spinach and ricotta, a really complicated technique that they excelled at. Well done girls, I'm so proud of how hard they always work in lessons.
We have then been adapting and making healthier spaghetti bolognese, everyone's favourite! We chose lean mince and wholemeal pasta, along with adding all our favourite veggies. They were a triumph, I hope they were enjoyed by all the family.
If your child has borrowed a dish or container from school, please could we have it returned, and if you have any unwanted biscuit or sweet tins, or general containers, they would be very gratefully received. Thank you
