Year 12 students cook up a storm

As part of their Level 3 Diploma in Food Science and Nutrition, the Year 12 students completed an internally assessed 3.5 hour practical assessment.

The Brief:

A local spa is undergoing refurbishment and wants to include a fitness and well being theme to encourage clients to reassess their health. The restaurant  is being redesigned to include a new menu with a clear focus on providing nutritious, fresh dishes using seasonal ingredients. You have decided to enter the competition to design the new menu being directly responsible for kitchen hygiene and food quality’ 

The students had been researching and trialing dishes in the weeks leading up to the assessment. They created menus and justified their choices nutritionally and cost wise.

They all worked really hard, showcasing a wide range of technical skills to produce and present  high quality dishes like lemon meringue pie, Italian herb bread, scotch eggs, fresh tomato soup with olive bread rolls and vanilla cheesecake

C11x was set up as a restaurant, the tables were laid and parents arrived to sample the extensive, brilliant menu.Well done to Jessica Bone, Arabella Parker, Lily Scourfield and George Sordillo for the hard work they put in and for using fantastic presentation techniques. I am so proud of them.

The parents commented that it was a lovely experience and were so happy to be invited into school to taste the food prepared and be served by their own children.
