In design technology this term we are learning how to bake different breads from around Europe!
We have been extremely lucky to be the first year group to try out the new food technology room and it is amazing! With six cooking stations and a teacher station consisting of an induction hob, oven and work surface space, there is more than enough room for all of us to be cooking at the same time.
To start us off, we made a delicious garlic and rosemary focaccia. First, we looked at different recipes at the similarities and differences, then we worked out the ingredients that we needed to purchase and made sure we knew the method.
We learned the words knead and prove in the context of baking and learned how yeast aerates the dough.
We worked together in teams, distributing the jobs (including the cleaning up!) and created the most delicious bread – we can’t wait to make more this term!
