Food Tech this Half Term

The year 10 students went on a trip to the Food Sorcery in Didsbury

This half term has been a busy one in food. We have said goodbye to our year 11 students and wish them lots of luck in their exams.

The year 10 students went on a trip to the Food Sorcery in DidsburyThe year 10 students went on a trip to the Food Sorcery in Didsbury to develop and improve their practical skills. They made delicious Cornish pasties and profiteroles. We had a fantastic time and picked up lots of new tricks to ensure success when making choux pastry.

Years 7, 8 and 9 continue to work hard to develop their own skills and have produced some lovely dishes this term including home made pizzas, chilli con carne and chicken goujons.

Have a lovely break. We are looking forward to the launch of the AGGS Bake Off 2018 competition after the break.

Fish Monger at AGGS

This week Janice Hamilton, a fish monger from Waitrose in Altrincham, delivered a demonstration to the Year 11 Food and Nutrition students on preparing, filleting and skinning fresh fish. This is an important high level skill required for their GCSE. Janice brought in some Sea Bass and Sea Bream and after showing them the different skills she gave the students the chance to have a go themselves. We really appreciate this opportunity to learn from an expert and the students thoroughly enjoyed the session. Thank you Janice.
