What are the class doing? It’s okay the crocodile is safe and was cubed and put in a delicious marinade!
We designed three different marinades from fresh ingredients and left the crocodile to tenderise overnight. We had the stir-fried cubed meat as a kebab with healthy fresh vegetables and rice. Our chef Karina showed us how to present the rice in an attractive way using a measuring cup to form half a sphere. This is why she is the professional! Fabulous Karina!
Students thought that the crocodile meat was similar in taste to chicken but had the texture of fish. It is a delicacy in Australia and all the students had a try! It’s good to try new foods when we visit a different country!
The afternoon options class chose to make High Tea this week. Students planned their menu of one savoury and one desert all in tiny portions as each morsel should be no more than two bites! Traditional triangle sandwiches (no crusts) of egg mayonnaise were complemented by more modern takes on the traditional with cream cheese and fig and a further choice of ricotta cheese with pesto. The Banoffee Fingers were demolished and the Scones with cream and strawberries disappeared fast. Mini Pavlovas made an appearance topped with fresh vanilla cream and fruit and the Cream Puff Slices looked dainty and were beautifully presented dusted with icing sugar.
Each group researched their recipes and made a shopping list ready for the grand afternoon. It was a sophisticated alternative to lunch and dinner. Students tried Earl Grey tea and the treats were served on a tiered cake stand. The only question that remained was “Who shall be mother?” It is custom for the lady of the house to pour tea for her guests and the saying comes from times when tea was a luxury item and the lady of the house kept the key for the caddy. She would mix green and black tea leaves to the liking of the household and the leave the tea to brew in hot water before pouring out into china cups.
The Cooking Club have been busy in the kitchen. Maria set them the challenge to make the most delicious dip and we were graced with three scrumptious dips that didn’t only taste good but looked fantastic!!!! They were all so yummy that I’m not sure if a winner was chosen.
