International breakfast is on the menu for GCSE exams

Our tummies were rumbling and taste buds tingling when our Year 11 students were cooking up their tantalising menus for the GCSE Food Preparation & Nutrition exams.

The theme for their exam menus was ‘International Breakfast’ and our students served up mouth-watering dishes from around the world. They had up to three hours to prepare and cook three different breakfast dishes around the nationalities of their choice. Dishes included Eggs Benedict, Kedgeree, Empanadas, Pisto Con Huevos, Waffles, Croissants, Danish Pastries and the Full English!

It was fantastic to see the wide array of seasonal produce and ingredients that students had chosen to use that reflect their personal tastes and backgrounds.

As well as taste and presentation, an important part of the exam was also the planning by documenting their food preparation, cooking methods and techniques with timings plus taking into consideration food hygiene and safety.

It is inspiring to see how our students have demonstrated their passion for food, nutrition and cooking by creating and testing these menus in preparations for their exams.
