We were visited by the Fun Food Chef, who helped us to develop our food technology skills. We had the opportunity to help prepare a variety of savoury and sweet dishes around an Italian theme to link with our topic 'A Pizza Pompeii'. We had to prepare the dough for our pizzas, we well as helping to chop the vegetables for toppings. We also had the opportunity to make and taste caponata, risotto and even Roman squid. We learned about how to fillet the squid in before it is cooked and how to remove the bones. Finally, we made strawberry mess and a grape mocktail. We were all very open to trying out some new flavours and textures we had never tried before.
