Two Days of Fun Kitchen

At the end of last week we welcomed back Fun Kitchen to lead a 2-day food science cookery event.

Fun kitchen is an award-winning company that teaches students the science behind cookery and healthy eating whilst including practical and traditional cookery skills into their sessions.

During the two days, Year 8 and 9 students have attended the sessions filling N6 with exciting food science.

Our students have:

- set sugar alight to explore its energy content

- denatured proteins by using acids, heat and physical action - making mozzarella

- learnt about the chemical structure of protein based foods

- learned about complex sugars, preservatives and raising agents

- looked at the elasticity of gluten

- made Marvelous banana and oat muffins

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

Mrs Wilkinson said,

"It has been an explosive learning opportunity for our students who have engaged in all the activities with great enthusiasm. The event has helped students understand the science behind the new Food and Nutrition curriculum amazingly well, giving students a great insight to the science and nutrition elements. It truly has been a memorable couple of days."
