In Kitchen class we made Fried Rice Lettuce Cups.

Kitchen Garden News - T5 11 Sarah showed us how to prepare all of the ingredients which required carefully cutting, slicing and chopping lots of different vegetables. She also impressed upon us the need to accurately measure the sauces and oils that would be needed.

Kitchen Garden News - T5 12The most important thing to remember about making a stir fry is that you need to have all the ingredients prepared and ready for use BEFORE you begin to cook. Otherwise some ingredients could burn and be ruined waiting for other ingredients to be added.

We also learned that hot oil can be very dangerous and that a stir fry requires you to continually move the vegetables around as they are frying in the wok.

We pre-prepared the egg component and basically created an omelette. This was a great opportunity to learn new skills and practise our important knife skills.
