    Hi there.

    I would say that the only issue you face is ensuring the lessons are accessible to all. On that basis, rather than choosing a particular recipe to prepare (requiring all pupils to have the same ingredients), you could set more generic tasks (eg. "a salad" could be a green salad, pasta salad, potato salad, fruit salad, etc). One food technology lesson I remember from my school days was planning and preparing a healthy meal.

    Alternatively, could you prepare a list of 'store cupboard essentials' that will be needed for a set of practical lessons, and then additional ingredients that can be added if you want to? An example of what I mean could be:
    Essential ingredients
    Flour, butter, eggs, sugar, milk
    Lesson 1: make pasta sauce
    Lesson 2: make a cake
    Additional ingredients
    Cheese (to add to pasta sauce)
    Dried fruit/cocoa powder/chocolate chips (to add to cake)
