Home Ec: Empanadas

Home Ec: Empanadas

Empanadas are stuffed pastries that are very popular in South America. These often have a slightly sweet dough--sometimes they are even sprinkled with powdered sugar, that works as a perfect contrast to the savory filling.

They can be baked or fried; typically large enough to be a meal, but can also be made into a small, appetizer-size version.

Year 9 HKK chose three different styles of empanadas: 

Group 1: Argentinian Style, accompained by Pico de Gallo, a spicy Mexican tomato dip.

Group 2: Brazilian Style, acompained by a Chili sauce.

Group 3: Colombian Style, accompained by a lime. 

They were all delicious. Students enjoyed them. And the HKK teacher is SO proud of them!

Master Chef Competition

Master Chef Competition

Ms. Vachon’s and Mr. Ulloa’s year 6 and 7 students had a sweet time in Home Economics class during week 47!

They made delicious desserts, competed with each other in a Master Chef competition and were judged by IES Länna’s professional staff.

I had a 5-second mental shock when a student, while finishing twisting his first Khinkali, asked me:

"Mr. Ulloa, this is not right, right?"

She thought that the way she twisted her Khinkali was not well done because it was not the same as the one she reviewed in her theory lesson, while I delighted in that masterpiece she dared to call "disaster."

Most of the time, teachers ask their students for X; sometimes they get X + 1. Here's a proof... Home Economics Year 8 students, going that extra mile by being more creative than they were asked for.

Home Ec: Shrimp Gumbo Soup

Home Ec: Shrimp Gumbo Soup

Last week, Y9 Home Ec students made delicious Canadian pizzas, but today they really impressed with a Shrimp Gumbo Soup, after going through some theory about American Cuisine. This dish can be easily the spicy dinner or lunch you're looking for; one of those instant gratification gluten-free dishes! 

Congrats Y9 Home Ec! Are you ready now for Central American cuisine?! =)

After some theory about European Cuisine, students from Year 8 ran their first Practical making a Continental Breakfast: müssli with yoghurt and fruits (strawberries and blueberries), natural orange juice and also homemade banana muffins. 

It was a pleasure to see them all having fun!
