For our Food Technology unit, we looked at seasonal vegetables and identified a variety of different items.
We chopped and diced a variety of vegetables and learnt how to use a knife correctly.
Once we had cooked the vegetable chow mein, we tasted and and evaluated it against our expectations.
Some of us loved it, others thought we could add more flavour.
