In KS3 we aim to develop an enthusiasm for cooking and an interest and knowledge in how food is important for good health.
Pupils will usually cook every week. We choose recipes that will teach the students to use the hob and the oven. They will learn how to choose and use the correct knives and other equipment for food preparation and they will learn about basic food hygiene.
The recipes have been chosen for their suitability to use in a 45 minute lesson and where possible have been adapted to follow the healthy eating guidance of the eat well plate. We start with simple snack foods and progress to main meals.
