On Wednesday’s advanced cookery lesson, we had a cooking competition. We had to cook lasagne for the boarders’ supper. We had eight of us separated into two teams, cooking a meat lasagne and vegetarian lasagne. We did a lot of research on recipes to come to the final decision beforehand. On the day, chefs from catering came down to FT room and helped us with the cooking. We were all really busy as everything has to be done in 2 hours, excluding baking the lasagne. Overall, it was really interesting as this is my first time having a large-scale cooking experience, using huge spatulas and sauce pans from catering. It is such a memorable experience. Just want to say thank you to the chefs, catering staffs and our teacher Miss Hurley for making this competition possible.

Team A was Alice, Remy, Rachel Chan and Angie – they made spinach and pumpkin and turkey based lasagnes
Team B was Lola, Molly, Tanya and Rachel Chau – they made Mediterranean vegetable and beef based lasagnes
