Extra sessions

Extra sessions of the Licence to Cook lessons. Note the session guides are to follow shortly.

Extra session 1: Biscuits

This session is about baking biscuits, both savoury and sweet. As with other sessions, students will revisit many skills and techniques, therefore making them more confident cooks.  It also provides you with the opportunity to assess students' practical capability. You could use the practical observation sheet to help.

During this session, students will make either Cheese straws or ANZAC biscuits. These have been chosen as they improve essential knowledge of flour based products, act as a reminder for the safe use of the cooker and can be cooked by students easily at home for an occasional treat. If your students are intolerant to gluten, there is a range of gluten free flours available.

There is lots of room for students to be creative, selecting different types of ingredients that could be combined into the dishes. You could get your students to use the Cheese straws or ANZAC biscuits recipe writing frames before cooking to develop their own ideas. The students’ own recipe creations could then be used in this session. 

Recipes: Cheese straws and ANZAC biscuits.
