Cooking with Bianca!! 11th October

After it’s popularity last month Lexis student and Chef Bianca kindly agreed to host another cooking class for us!

This time she showed us how to make a sweet, simple, quick, cheap, tasty snack!! Everything you could ever want!

She started by giving everyone some fruit to cut (strawberries, kiwis, bananas, berries, and apples), whilst she made a warm mixture of condensed milk, coconut and cream!

We all then went outside and she demonstrated the best way to present and layer our ingredients onto toast, explaining what flavours and colours work well together to make it look good, as well as taste good!

It was absolutely delicious; so much so that none of us cared that we had nutella all over our faces!! Renata, while enjoying her second, described it as ‘the best day of here life’!

Luckily Bianca loves sharing her passion and knowledge of cooking with others as her fellows students have asked for this to be a regular activity! 🙂 🙂

Aussie Cooking! July 20

Today we baked some Australian cookies, ANZAC Biscuits. These tasty treats are very quick and easy to make, so we baked two batches of cookies!

Aya and Sua decided to get creative with their biscuits by sprinkling the mixture with ground coffee and then cooking them in the sandwich press… They insist that the biscuits were just as delicious with this method of cooking!

The rest of the cookies were baked in the oven and came out perfectly. Needless to say, there are no cookies left!
