A big thank you and well done to the Y10 GCSE Food Tech students and Y12 IB Food students who prepared all the food for the presenters after the Higher Education Fair.

The Y10 students were in charge of sandwiches and they initially all designed their own, using different types of bread filling and we decided on the best five. We then turned this into a production line activity to show how to mass produce. There were five groups and each group had to make 80 sandwiches. One group even made their own dough and flat breads.

The Y12 students came up with lots of ideas for sweet and savoury snacks/canapes and then we discussed the feasibility of each one before deciding the nine which made up a nice balanced menu. It was challenging, but manageable.
