I originally starting doing this lab after a student suggested that we make blooming onions like the ones that they serve at Outback Steak House. I enjoy trying to recreate foods that are sold to consumers so I took on the challenge. In this case a recipe already existed online for Outback’s version so I tried it and my students approved!
Its amazing how many students do not learn how to set a table at home these days-even a basic table setting. This lesson teaches students the correct table setting with a hands on approach.
If you have never made homemade pasta with your students you are missing out. It is a blast and my students’ reactions are always funny as they stare in amazement that you can make pasta from scratch!
