Foods 2 was busy practicing with knives this week.
Every student used a chef knife and paring knife.
We practiced and practiced and labeled.
Next up was garnishing stations.
Students practiced items that were on their test, like garnishing salads with croutons, garnishing sandwiches with pickles on the side.
Everyone’s favorite is plate painting.
We practice a group melon basket and the tournee potato.
I break out the spiralizer and we make some shoestring potatoes in the fryer.
Mrs. Brown’s personal favorite garnishing station is the apple swan. I love the challenge for the students.
It makes them so proud to see a final product.
Omar is definitely liking his.
Even if they don’t make it picture perfect, it’s worth the challenge.
Garnishing day is a big hit with a variety of tools and foods to choose from.
It is one lab where they stay busy the ENTIRE class period.
