Lexis Noosa MasterChef Competition

Today 20 of our Lexis Noosa students went head to head in a burger building competition.

Fresh Fruit from Queensland

The cooking class are all levels of general English and this week we visited local shops and looked at local produce.  We are so lucky to live in an area where lots of fruit and vegetables are grown locally.  The class researched seven recipes and then presented them with a description.  We all voted for our preferred options and we chose to make a Caramelised PIneapple Curry and a Strawberry Shortcake.  The strawberries were grown on a farm nearby and the pineapple was grown on a farm in Kadanga in the hinterland.

The students enjoyed giving instructions and checking information using the new vocabulary they were taught.  Best of all we loved tasting the creations at the end!
