Food: Come Dine with Me

Working in groups, children research and prepare a three-course meal taught as a rotational activity over three lessons. They will taste-test and score their food and when they aren’t cooking, they will research the journey of their main ingredient from ‘farm to fork’ or write a favourite recipe to include in a class cookbook. ***New Knowledge organiser***

Choose your lesson

Lesson 1: Three ingredients; three courses

In pairs, children research a recipe for the course they will make: a pepper starter or salmon main course or pineapple dessert.

Lesson 2: To start…

Those pairs of children making the pepper starters prepare and make the recipes they researched in Lesson 1, whilst the rest of the class research how salmon are reared, caught and processed, or make a recipe page for a class cookbook.

Lesson 3: The main course

Those children making the salmon main course prepare and make the recipes they researched in Lesson 1, whilst the remainder of the class trace the journey food makes across the world to reach our supermarkets, or make a recipe page for a class cookbook.

Lesson 4: Dessert

Those children making the pineapple desserts, prepare and make the recipes they researched in Lesson 1, whilst the remainder of the class find out how peppers are grown or make a recipe page for a class cookbook.
