Exhibition Part 1

  • The course is separated in “visitors” and “exhibitors” – they all have work assignments.

  • The “exhibitors” have to set up their boots and start cooking. Later the “food exhibition” is opened.

  • Before the opening, the “visitors” receive their work sheets with instructions how to grade the “exhibitors” , how to communicate with them and to name their three most favorite dishes of the “food exhibition”.

  • The teacher evaluates the preparation, presentation, the use of FL and the taste of the dishes!
