Year 9 Masterchef
Our Year 9 Food Science Technology class participated in the MasterChef Cooking Challenge this Tern. Each student pair or group had to create a dish composed of ingredients from a mystery box, which consisted of a variety of ingredients. Our group cooked up a soup called Tom Yum. There were many other delicious and creative dishes, varying from deserts to savoury dishes. Thank you to our judges, Mr Allen, Mr Damon and Mrs Melbourne, who took time to taste and judge our dishes. Good job to Sarah Chen (OLS2) and Armani Valentini (SC4) who won the overall competition, with Amelia Ghobrial (SE1) and Emi Nelthorpe (SE2) as runners up. Thank you to Mrs Poga for organising this challenge, it was an enjoyable experience that taught us a lot.

To commence our MasterChef Challenge, we were presented with a mystery box of items to help structure our cook. In partners or groups we each selected a dish and prepared for the cook off. Our class presented a range of dishes varying from chocolate cupcakes to steak and mashed potato, whilst we cooked Chicken and Bacon Skewers with Corn and Lemon Thyme Butter. Each group spent the lesson cooking to present a final dish that would be presented to our judges. Thank you to Ms Berlingeri and Mr Robinett for judging. Congratulations to Winnie Harrington (SC4) and Maria-Lee Walker Johns (AN6), the winners of our class’ MasterChef, presenting a beautiful Coconut and Chicken Curry. And to our runners-up, Grace Gentry (SE6) and Liya Beyene Gebreyohannes (SC2) for their Mini Chocolate Cake with Berries. Overall it was an amazing opportunity and experience for us. Thank you Ms Poga, we really enjoyed it.

Year 8 Afternoon Tea
Leading up to our afternoon tea, our class got started making different recipes for our guests to enjoy. The whole class worked together as a team to make these recipes – some were hard but we managed and did such a good job. We were also assigned different tasks to do on the day which was great. On the day we experienced hosting our guests. It was a fun experience that taught us a lot. We enjoyed seeing all the parents and teachers having a good time around us.

In preparing for the afternoon tea, we worked on a range of recipes. Everyone invited a guest to come to the afternoon tea. We then plated the food so that it was ready for the function. When the guests arrived, everyone looked after their guest and got them food and drinks.
