Our Year 5s met the challenge recently when Mel asked them to create entire dishes from a MYSTERY BOX of ingredients. There was no recipe included in the box.  Students were quick to create a meal from each box and you’ll be amazed to see the final products in this slideshow.

Amazing Apples created Italian Pasta; Terrific Tomatoes cooked Fried Rice; Crafty Capsicums invented Potato Pear Pizza; Brilliant Broccoli stirred up a Stir Fry; Radical Radishes dished up Bruschetta and Cool Carrots turned out Bean Tortillas!

This is what some of our Year 5 students in T7 had to say:

Mikyla said: The trickiest part was cutting the onion because it really hurts your eyes!

Rica B. said: I really enjoyed cutting the pears and making shapes with the dough.

Henri said: The pasta sauce tasted delicious to the extreme!

Indi said: The most interesting ingredients today was how we cooked the tortillas in the frypan quickly to make sure they didn’t burn.

Ramita said: Today I learnt how to make an omelette by whisking eggs, salt and pepper.
