It’s a two day event learning about biscuits in Foods 1. We’re baking our second quick bread and students are making their very first biscuits.
I love watching them combine the dry ingredients and practice using the pastry blender for the very first time.
They have to get their hands messy to knead the dough
It’s a group effort or sometimes
it’s a solo practice.
I encourage all the students to try kneading and rolling and cutting to see what it feels like to make something from scratch.
I’m so happy to see Nic giving this skill a whirl. Way to to go! And he looks professional.
Students gather around to learn the cutting technique of twisting and turning the cutter.
No big daddy biscuit lab is complete without our competition.
I invite our guest teachers to evaluate the biscuits’ qualities.
It’s always difficult when you have great first time biscuit makers.See what I mean? They make it look too easy for first-timers.
Big Daddy Biscuit winners in both classes with a 98 average. Woo hoo for biscuit lab.
