Culinary Exchange!

Today some second year Home Economics students experienced a culinary delight as their classmate Sophia Chen dazzled us with her skills and technique of making spring rolls. Students are currently learning about different types of pastry and their uses. Sophia informed the class about how to handle and prepare filo pastry, the combinations of fillings used, how to wrap and roll correctly and the importance of cooking till golden brown. For some students it was their first time tasting spring rolls. All students were delighted with the step-by-step rolling instructions demonstrated by Sophia. They are going to attempt to make spring rolls at home in the coming weeks. The flaky, crispy, golden spring rolls were a real crowd pleaser and enjoyed by all. Thank you Sophia!

Halloween HomeEc

Well done to Kieran O’Connor, Alex Hamilton and Niamh Walsh whose decorated Halloween buns won prizes. Amazing time and effort was put into these creations and all the other buns. It was hard to pick a winner. Special thanks to Isabelle Deely who iced more buns for today’s Class Halloween Picnic and shared her skills with other students.
