Fun Kitchen

This week we have had the pleasure of hosting a food science event especially for Year 7 students.

Fun Kitchen is an award-winning company that teaches students the science behind cookery and healthy eating whilst including practical traditional cookery skills. During the two days over 100 students have attended filling N6 with fun filled food science based sessions.

During the two days students have:

- Set sugar alight to explore its energy content

- Explored the role modified starch plays in modern foods 

- Denatured proteins by using acids, heat and mechanical action 

- Learned about the protein Gluten and its role in cookery

- Learned about the chemical structure of protein based foods 

- Looked into the future by tasting sustainable proteins, eating
   bugs, crickets and mealworms! 

It has literally been an explosive learning opportunity for a wide range of students. Many thanks to all staff and students who have made the event possible - it truly has been memorable.
