Food Technology


In your Food lessons, you will learn how to work safely with kitchen equipment used in a domestic kitchen. You will be able to prepare a range of appetising and healthy meals for yourselves or family and you can either eat the food at the end of the lesson or take it home.

All the ingredients will be provided and you will be expected to work safely and hygienically and then clear away and leave the kitchen in a tidy state for the next class.

You will work through different topics and learn new skills so it doesn’t matter if you haven’t done much cooking.

In KS3 the emphasis is on building practical skills and you will be preparing a variety of food products to illustrate the following topics-

Hopefully you will have fun while you are learning new skills!
