In this week’s Elements lesson we had a vist to Hong Kong Culinary Academy in Kwai Chung. This would put all the would test all the skills that the pupils had learnt in the past weeks, as they would need to be orgabised and hygienic, whilst working in  teams of 3.

After getting there and getting full chef’s uniform on, including chef hats, they were given a introductory talk from resident lecturer Nathan, then it was into the kitchen to watch a demonstration, that they would then have to recreate. On the menu was Chicken Kiev, with Broccoli Mash and salad. This involved , butterflying chicken breasts, making galic and parsley butter, peeling/chopping and boiling potato and broccoli, breadbrumbing and frying.

This produced some fantastic dishes that pupils then ate for their lunch. After lunch it was time to clean down and then we time to make some chocolate cookies. We even got to sample some of the excellent work from the pupils in pastry kitchen, with amazing chocolate piping on the plate.

A great trip, thoroughly enjoyed by all. Thanks to everyone at the academy for making it such a great experience.IMG_2229  IMG_2232 IMG_2235 IMG_2243 IMG_2244 IMG_2247 IMG_2248 IMG_2252 IMG_2253 IMG_2254 IMG_2256 IMG_2258 IMG_2264 IMG_2267 IMG_2268 IMG_2269 IMG_2270 IMG_2273 IMG_2275 IMG_2277 IMG_2287 IMG_2285 IMG_2282nce.
