RAF Chef cooks up a storm!

Year Ten Food Technology students welcomed back RAF Chef, Alex Le Marquand this week.

Chef Alex spent the day working with two groups creating a range of dishes that would be suitable to meet the needs of many a design brief. Technical skills were at the forefront of the sessions as they allowed students the chance to experience filleting and pin-boning of fresh fish, deboning and portioning whole chickens and making their own Oreo flavoured ice cream, in the state of the art commercial ice cream maker.

Students particularly enjoyed the bread and pasta making classes, as well as making their own version of a Nando's dinner. It is safe to say that the biggest hit was the ice cream though!

Chef Alex is hoping to return in June where he intends to set up a field kitchen that would allow the students to experience catering for the masses, as well as coming back with his RAF colleagues to stage a "Ready, Steady, Cook" Competition. There seriously is a lot cooking in the Food Department this year! 🙂
