Senior 2A pasta practical

Dear senior 2,

I am uploading the groups, as you shall be cooking for the first practical, which is a pasta/rice based dish.

Group 1 – abdul, martin, julian, asia, jay-kay, emily, ava, jake, ashref, faham, matthias, polina. These students will cook on 1st march.

Group 2 – tima, jade, naomi, sophia, francesca, yoon-ah, jimena, king, tqwa, hatoun. These students will cook on 15th march, as on the 8th march, the lesson will be missed due to parents day.

Things to get for the practical:

  1. apron and cap
  2. all the ingredients for the chosen dish – please remember to choose  a dish that can be prepared and cooked in about 70 minutes If in doubt please ask me.
  3. get decoration items so as to serve your meal e.g. table cloth, table mat, a menu card, flowers, a nice serving plate, etc..
  4. a dish cloth to dry the dishes.

Remember that you can cook alone, in pairs or in groups of three. Calculate to get about 80g of pasta for each person, not more.

For the preparation sheet, I suggest that for now you leave it out and I’ll explain how to fill it in next lesson, as I didn’t have time to go through it yesterday.

Senior 4 Preparation Sheet Sample

Good morning all.

I am attaching a sample preparation sheet. Obviously I didn’t do it for the Swiss roll or the fruit flan. However, you will get an exact idea of what you should write so as to get a good mark. So use it as a guideline.

Preparation Sheet Sample Work

I am also attaching the assessment criteria which I use to assign marks for the preparation sheet. It is the official one taken from the Home Economics Syllabus. This will help you so that you know what I look for when I am correcting your work.

Assessment Criteria for Practical Sessions

Happy Sunday!

Senior 4 swiss roll or fruit flan

Good morning senior 4.

Firstly I would like to thank all those who helped me with the washing up.

So, as I told you next practical will be the Swiss roll OR the fruit flan.

If you are going to do the swiss roll, get the following:

6 eggs

150 g self raising flour

150g sugar

1 tsp vanilla

Coconuts for rolling up the swiss roll

For the filling choose any : yoghurt (any flavour), any fruits for the filling and for decorating, sweetened ricotta (300g ricotta and about 3 tablespoons sugar)

* note that I have doubled the ingredients since the dishes we have are too big for just 3 eggs.

If you are going to do the fruit flan get these:

3 eggs

75g sugar

75g self raising flour

1/2 tsp vanilla

For the filling :  yoghurt any flavour, fruits, sprinkles, sweetened ricotta (it’s up to you as long as it is healthy)

Also get a flan tin (about 11 inches in diameter) because we don’t have in the lab.

Other things to get:

Apron and cap

A knife to chop the fruit

Baking paper especially if you are making the swiss roll

A dish cloth

Ingredients for drink

Decoration items: table cloth, table mat, menu card, any decorations suitable for tea time, serving plate for the fruit flan / swiss roll, cup for the drink.

A container in which to carry the Swiss roll or fruit flan.

These are the groups how you will be cooking:

Group 1: will cook on 26th February

Alessia, rachele, michela, alaa, timea, laura

Group 2: will cook on 4th March

Enrico, deborah, sam, celine, danica, li

Please make sure to be well prepared as this PRACTICAL WILL CONTRIBUTE TO 15% OF THE ANNUAL EXAM. The preparation sheet has a lot of marks, so make sure to fill it in with caution. I will upload a sample preparation sheet shortly to help you out.

Happy weekend!
