News from Foods
The Year 11's are studying beliefs, attitudes and values around Food Security this term. To kick the term off we explored the idea of making a healthy, cheap savoury take-away. We had great fun working with new vegetable spiralizers and substituted baby marrow's (at a ridiculous $22/kg!) for carrots which were much tastier, in season and cheaper!
The Year 13's are examining food advertising and the strategies that companies use to change our beliefs about food. This week we looked at the technique, "implying that cooking is hard" and pre-prepared meals. In class we contrasted easy mix pikelet mix versus the real thing.
For Food Safety the Year 10's are learning to make a variety of meals using best practices, with the aims to learn more about avoiding contamination and at the end of the unit cook a meal using high risk foods such as rice and chicken. Last week we made chicken nachos, this week we experimented with two versions of breakfast pikelets.
