The Year nine GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition cohort demonstrated top notch kitchen knife skills in a lesson testing their professional food cutting methods.

The 13 to 14-year-olds, who are in the first of the three year GCSE course, were challenged to chop carrots into complex finishes, including Julienne, Brunoise, Batonnet and Paysanne.

Head of Food Preparation and Nutrition, Miss Rachael Baker said:  “Students are required to prove their practical ability and dexterity in the final year coursework assessment.  By mastering and practising knife skills at this early stage, the cohort is able to confidently build-on their experience in all different types of dishes.”
