Food, nutrition, catering & hospitality resource shop

I am a food teacher with a degree in Food and Nutrition and a Masters in Nutritional Science. I spend a great deal of time producing a range of resources mainly focusing on the topics surrounding FPN but also some resources for Hospitality and Catering. I always try to make lessons as fun and interactive as possible to ensure that they are memorable to both teacher and student. I hope you find them useful.

Pastry - Shortcrust, puff and choux

Pastry - Shortcrust, puff and choux

(0)
A mini-project based on three types of pastry (shortcrust, choux and puff), the functions of ingredients in pastry and sustainability within a business. I have used this over one half-term with a lower ability year 9 class. The end goal was for them to create a short group presentation using an A1 piece of mount board which outlined their menu and business logo designs, showcasing products from their practical lessons and applying knowledge learnt about sustainability to their own business ideas. Students really enjoyed this project - it also meant for me that I only really had one set of marking to do at the end once they had done their presentations.
