Cookery

This term we are  making the connection between farm animals and the food that we get from them. Below are some recipes using milk, cheese and eggs.

 

It is a great opportunity for children to learn about where these things come from. We will watch some short videos to find out where they come from - we don't need to watch the whole video, just enough to get an idea.

 

It is also a good opportunity to introduce unfamiliar foods and let them explore - they can touch, taste and smell the different ingredients as they are adding them. 

Where Does Milk Come From?

Have your children ever wondered where milk comes from? In this a fun and educational video, Ethan and Justin take a trip to a dairy farm. You will see cows being milked, and understand how milk gets to our grocery stores.

Where do eggs come from?

Join the egg family on their journey from the farm to the dinner table. On this ultimate egg farm excursion you will learn all about where eggs come from - meet the hens, the farmers, the little baby chicks and even the guard dog.

How to make chocolate pancakes:

 

What you will need:

  • 1 mug of flour (or gluten free flower)
  • 1 mug of milk
  • 1 egg
  • chocolate spread
  • mixing bowl
  • frying pan (or microwave-friendly plate)

Use the visual above to help your child to complete each step of the recipe.

 

If you are using the hob:

  • To avoid burning little fingers, grease a frying pan with butter or oil and let your child pour the mixture into a cold pan.
  • Cook the pancake on the hob until you see little bubbles forming on top. At this point flip it over and cook for 30 second more.

 

If you are using the microwave:

  • Use a microwave-safe plate instead of a frying pan.
  • Grease it with lots of butter or margarine, then help your child to pour a thin layer of batter onto the plate.
  • It should be ready in 30 - 40 seconds.

How to make cheese spiral sandwiches:

This recipe has a few more steps than the chocolate pancakes, but it's great for practising spreading with a knife. If you don't have a rolling pin, you can just squash the bread with your hands or use a clean glass bottle with straight sides. You can also skip the grating step by using pre-grated cheddar cheese.

 

It's also a good place to learn about some of the foods we make out of milk and eggs - cheese is made out of cow's milk and mayonnaise is made using hen's eggs!
