Ultimate Cooking - Symposium Preparations

Yesterday in Ultimate Cooking, we prepared for the symposium. As we reflected on the week, it was hard to choose just one thing to display for all the things we have learned. As we came to a conclusion, we decided to make a Bolognese sauce with homemade pasta. Earlier in the week, we learned how to make both of these things at the Tuscan Kitchen during our workshop on Tuesday. We spent the afternoon yesterday making four pounds of pasta that we could feed to the community. We handmade the pasta by preparing the flour and using the proper techniques to form the dough. As we finished our first trial, we realized the dough was too wet and was sticking together. We then had to re-roll all the dough and remake the four pounds of pasta. As we finally completed the pasta, we learned how to over come obstacles and not rush processes in the kitchen. We also created a menu and a slide shows that displays our work throughout the week. At the end of the day we took a reflective period to look back on the skills we learned and the memories we made.
