Year 12 Hospitality Bake, Boil and Deep Fry to Complete Methods of Cookery Competency – Congratulations!
The Year 12 Hospitality classes completed their Methods of Cookery Competency task on Thursday 4 March. This task required the students to prepare, cook and serve an entree, main course and dessert using various methods of cooking.
The students prepared the lunches for over 100 staff that were attending the swimming carnival the following day. There were four different box options for the staff to choose. Some of the dishes included mini arancini balls (deep frying), basil pesto pasta (boiling) and apple crumble muffins (baking).
The feedback from staff about their lunches was amazing and the Hospitality students need to be congratulated for their efforts. Well done students!
