Achievement Days are just around the corner!
Foods & Entertaining 4-H Projects
This project series will give members an opportunity to learn everything from food safety and preparation tips, kitchen equipment, to proper meal etiquette and menu planning! Explore metric versus imperial measurements, along with the best way to cook and measure different food ingredients. Canada’s Food Guide will be visited in each topic, teaching members how to make healthy food choices. Members will have a well rounded recipe box by the time they complete the Food & You series!
Project completion requirements include a carrot cake, recipe file and a potted herb plant.
Similar to the Foods & You Series, members will learn a wide range of kitchen and food-related information, including food safety, kitchen tools, measuring techniques and Canada’s Food Guide recommendations. The focus will be on preparing food using only a microwave and the best practices to use.
Members will review the basics of food safety and preparation tips, proper measuring techniques and Canada’s Food Guide recommendations. This project will give special focus to cooking protein foods, including everything from nuts to pulses, to eggs, meat and fish. Members will be responsible for planning, preparing and cooking a meal for invited guests.
Cake Decorating Projects
Cake decorating can transform a plain, delicious cake into a special dessert. Members will learn how to properly bake a cake, make and work with butter cream icing and learn how to use several different tips to fill their “canvas” with beautiful colours and patterns.
