Making 3 & 5 Strand Plaited Bread @ YSSC
2021 has been an exciting year for year 7 Food Studies students at Yarrabilba State Secondary College. Students have been cooking up a storm all year learning food preparation techniques that will make them confident cooks. Students explored food from around the World, investigating a variety of cultures and specialty dishes.
At YSSC, students are exposed to deep learning, critical and creative thinking and project-based learning. YSSC has a strong commitment to building partnerships in the local community and beyond. Teachers pride themselves in “thinking outside the box” to deliver innovative learning experiences through a contemporary curriculum design. The junior secondary program includes targeted and personalised learning to maximise success and engagement for every student.
Year 7 Food Studies students were recently treated to a bread making master class run by one of the parents Ben Russell. Ben’s daughter Rose attends Yarrabilba State Secondary College. Ben demonstrated how to make dough from scratch and how to make 3 and 5 strand plaits. Students had the opportunity to design and cook their own animal shaped bread and were taught how to make croissants with puff pastry. The results were amazing!
Ben was impressed with the enthusiasm students displayed in their learning and great maturity and safety in the kitchen. Students are now equipped with the skills to utilise cookery techniques to produce their own pizza dough, scrolls and croissants at home.
