Our last day in the kitchen together was a culminating one. Now that everyone has some solid culinary skills they were able to pair it with their good teamwork to execute lunch without any help from me.
Armed with their individual recipes they found their materials, did their mis en place and cooked their dish.
As became a camp tradition during, we baked off our morning snack first thing! Here are some peanut butter cookies
Then the chopping started.
We kept all of the trim from the vegetables that we chopped since Monday. We made some great vegetable stock from those vegetables and then we made an egg drop soup.
Everyone loved the soup
Here is our lunch plate. We had Phad Thai and Ginger Chicken served over basmati rice.
After lunch we went back to baking. We used a cookie press with spritz dough
We dipped our spritz cookies into coloured confectionary coating
Then we made chocolate truffles using traditional chocolatier technique. We made a chocolate ganached, piped mounds out onto parchment, assembled the mounds into balls and then dipped the centres into tempered chocolate. Yum. What a great end to our camp.
Thank you to Amirah, Bianca, Caroline, Hayley, Liam, Priya, Sierra and Sophie for learning and having fun with me in the kitchen. It was a great week and I hope that you enjoyed it.
