House Master-Chef

House Master-Chef was our next event that took place on the 27th of March. Students were tasked with creating either a Starter and Main or Starter and Dessert that they had to present to Miss Hall our Food Technology teacher. Each group turned up with a dish and hurried away to prepare and cook their dish for the Judge. Each House was graded on four key aspects, presentation, taste, texture and the quality of the dish overall.

Nashwan House made Meatball pasta dish served with Garlic bread and Macaroons. Tulyar House made a Thai Green Curry with a Victora Sponge, Octavius made Tomato Pasta with Halloumi and a Rainbow Cake whilst, Sinndar made Penne and Chargrilled vegetables and a red velvet brownie for dessert.

The students were given 1 hour and 15 minutes to prepare, cook and present the meal to Miss Hall who would try the dish and then grade them based on the judging criteria mentioned before. Each of the students worked well throughout with students being given roles and responsibilities such as preparing, cooking and washing up, each role being as important as one another for the House to be successful.

After the allocated time was up, students had to pack up, wash up and put away before the results were read out, please see below for results. A huge congratulations to the following students who participated in the House MasterChef, Alexa, Eva, Evie, Jess, Daniella, Zeph, Miko, Natan, Maddy, Kai, Aiden, Jemima, Lucy, Sarah and Max.
