Level 4: First Kitchen Class

Vishwa G, Kitchen Captain

Last week was our first Kitchen lesson for the year, with our new teacher Mrs Bourke. We were excited!

We cooked Biryani which is an Indian rice dish with kumara (also known as sweet potato), pepitas (also known as pumpkin seeds) and sultanas. We also cooked some delicious Zucchini Soup using huge zucchinis from our garden and learnt how to make a roux which is the basis for many sauces. We made a Vegetable Salad with a Vinaigrette which had honey in it. For dessert we made a Fruit Compote with Lemon Cream which was made with a mixture of yoghurt, icing sugar and cream.

Everyone enjoyed the food and the lesson, and we are looking forward to more Kitchen lessons this year.

Thanks to our parent helpers: Mr Leonard, Mrs Karatzas and Mrs Stewart, for without you we couldn’t cook! We need some more helpers as we have four groups and some parents can’t come every week. Please let your child’s teacher know if you can help.
