Year 11 students at the Gateway Academy have recently been working on their GCSE task two coursework which focusses on International cooking.
The students research and pick a country to focus on and then look at the ingredients and dishes they are well known for. The next step is to plan, prepare and cook a two-course meal for their final assessment. The stunning results were a range of dishes from Chinese, Indian, Mauritian and Jamaican food.
Class teacher, Miss Surraya Constable, said “The students carried out the task in a professional manner and showed high skills from sauce and pasta making. Jamie decided to go for Italy, making chicken tortellini with homemade garlic balls and butter, followed by a panna cotta with a strawberry coulis accompanied by chocolate biscotti biscuits. The flavours of her dish were incredible and rich, demonstrated with confidence and competence. We are very proud of all of our students, they have excelled in this task.”
