Year 7 Food Technology – Banh Mi

The first practical class for Year 7s required them to produce a ‘Banh Mi’ – a delicious, crunchy and flavoursome Vietnamese-inspired sandwich/roll.

The focus of this task was to familiarise the students with the Food Technology classrooms, as well as introduce them to important safety and hygiene practices in the school kitchen. Students also began developing their knife skills. As you can see from the photos, the students thoroughly enjoyed their first opportunity at preparing food at school.
