    International Food, work in pairs, each takes a country and researches food, then cooks some things from the country? Or do Staples, look at rice, pasta, potatoes and bread.
  3. Hi, depends on time. Imagine selling food at one of the many food outlets at the 2012 games,
    research consumer needs
    find out what type of food products they would buy
    come up with recipes from different countries
    try out several in practical lessons
    do some sensory analysis and product development
    make final product

    hope that helps
  4. sorry for lack of punctuation, was a list when I typed it out!

  6. How Olympic flags...
    "It’s said that the pizza that made Naples world famous is the Pizza
    Margherita in Italian or Pizza Margarita to the rest of the world. It was first
    baked in 1889 by a local man and the town baker called Esposito. He created the
    pizza in honour of a visit to Naples by the Queen of Italy, Queen

    He designed the pizza to follow the colours of the Italian flag, so he chose
    tomatoes for the red, basil for the green and Mozzarella for the white, to
    create the famous and patriotic pizza we still eat today." (From Suite101)
    How about getting the students to design dishes that represent an olympic competitor's flag and use ingredients that are common in the competitor's country?

  7. woops! That should have said "How about.."
