This Tuesday 13th June we went to the Tech Room to do some cooking. As part of our Book Week activities we decided to make some summer rolls.
Fist we prepared the ingredients. We could choose form these fillings – vermicelli, cucumber, lettuce, capsicum, carrots and beans. There were the rice paper sheets to wrap the ingredients in.We had chopsticks to eat them with. Also we had soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce for dipping our rolls in.
Everyone watched Mrs de Koning make the first roll. She soaked the rice paper in warm water for 30 seconds as we counted. Then she put the paper onto the table. It had to lay flat and round. Next in went the yummy vegetables!
Afterwards we just had to wrap the roll up like wrapping a parcel. Over went the two sides and then round and round we rolled it.
1/3 of the class stayed with Mrs B and Mrs Brindle and the rest of the class went back with Mrs de Koning to wait their turn. As each person made their summer roll and ate it, they went to the class to choose someone to take their place.
Those in class watched another video from YouTube about how to make vegetarian summer rolls. We loved making the rolls
