    October 30, 2017 Chris Lord

    This week in Lord’s Kitchen, students we asked to bring their favorite fruit or sweet treat, then  they were put into random pairs or trios to design and a make a dessert, using their ingredients combination. After 20 mins brainstorming and planning the studesnt got down to making the different components of their desserts and the kitchen was a frenzy of cakes, meringues, mousses, sauces and souffles. The Chefs of the week Aika, Agastya and Justin were decided by Ms Leung who came to give her professional opinion of the presentation  and deiced that these three had collaborated the best and had challenged themselves, as they had even tried some molecular gastronomy to make coffee spherifications to go with the chocolate and pomegranate dessert.

    Well done to all the Y12 BTEC Hospitality students, who designed and made their own meals in groups today, to serve to staff at lunch. There was a really varied and interesting menu, which gave staff a difficult choice for which team to eat from. Staff then paid a contribution of what they felt it was worth and filled in feedback questionnaires, to help the students evaluate the success of the service. Red Team: Stir fry Seafood Vietnamese Noodles with Vegetable Spring Roll Yellow Team: Korean Spicy Beef and Broccoli Served with Brown Rice Green Team: Quinoa bean Burger with a side of sweet potato fries and garlic coleslaw THE BLUE TEAM Thai Chicken Satay, with steamed vegetables, and Coconut Rice. (peanut sauce on the side)     The feedback was fantastic and students enjoyed the event so much they wanted to do it more regularly and staff would be very happy with this.
