Independent Learning Task(s) to Complete:
A practical understanding and application is vital to success in this new Level 3 qualification. Having the ability to plan and make different products using different ingredients and methods of making are key elements. Attached is a GCSE list of products that you need to be able to make. Use the list as following:
- Tick off all products you can make with confidence
- Mark the products you are less confident with or have not made
- Over the summer period practise/remake the products from point 2.
- Produce comprehensive planning sheets to accompany your recipes. It is not expected that you produce a planning sheet for each dish but attempt to complete 2 or 3 detailed sheets to include safety checks alongside quality control points. An outline of the type of planning sheet required is attached as well as an example.
