Food preparation and nutrition

This week our Y9 Food students have been looking into cooking methods.

They have done a mini investigation making beef burgers and then cooking them by baking/ roasting in the oven, microwaving, grilling and frying. The homemade burgers each weighed 71g and each was cooked to a temperature of 75degrees. Once cooked, students evaluated the colour and appearance of the burgers, before cutting them up to look at the moisture content. The students also analysed the amount of fat which was left after cooking. Finally came the all important taste test.

Well done Y9.

Mrs James and Miss Sinden
