Applied Learning PDS Foods Excursion - Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food

23 May 2016

Over the past 4 weeks, we have been going to Jamie’s Ministry of Food in Moorabool Street, Geelong. We catch the train there and back each Thursday. Throughout the 4 weeks we have made yellow chicken curry with rice, learned various ways to cook eggs, cooked spaghetti with meatballs, feta and mint salad and pear crumble with custard.

So far I have learnt how to time and cook eggs perfectly. I have enjoyed cooking at Jamie’s Ministry of Food because we cook harder foods and all different types of foods that I don’t usually eat. I have enjoyed learning about these new foods.

I have used many VCAL outcomes over these four weeks by showing teamwork, being reliable and independent, helping others when needed and being part of the group to clean up at the end of each session.

Three quick tips from Jamie are to:

1. Use a non-stick pan when cooking omelettes

2. Always make custard over a low heat

3. Buy olives with the stones still in as they are tastier and stones are easy to remove.
