Class 10EG have been working independently during our Turney School food tech sessions on creating a number of different snack dishes. A recent session saw the students prepare and bake a healthy vegetable burger.
Recipe sheets were closely followed, with each class member making sure that they chose the right amount of each ingredient from a food bar that had been set up in the food tech space.
The instructions in the recipes were then followed. Adult supervision was available, but the expectation was for independent work. Some new food tech skills were learnt, such as how to use the garlic crusher to add a little extra flavour to our vegetable burgers.
The teaching staff asked plenty of questions as the pupils went about their preparation. The students were asked how each ingredient added to the mix and flavour. An example was the addition of an egg, which had the role of binding the mixture together.
The students were asked to follow the safety instructions very carefully when using the food tech ovens. The washing up of our equipment took place whilst the vegetable burgers were cooking.
A tasting session then took place. All of the pupils were very happy with their final snack! The Class 10EG food tech session came to a close with an evaluation exercise. Each student was asked to list the skills used, how they might improve their work, as well as deciding if this was a healthy meal or not.
