We arrived at Hades all dressed in a variety of Greek outfits, excited and curious of what we were going to do. Initially scared because Hades is hell but it turned out that we made delicious honey cakes that smelt and tasted amazing. After that we made spanakopita filling which was made up of many vegetables the clue is in the name (spinach) . It was really fun to make and the honey cakes smelt delicious of spice and sweetness. Best cooking
Next we made Tzatziki, a yoghurt, cucumber and garlic dip.We squeezed the cucumber and got rid of the juice, it was really fun!Then added garlic and yoghurt. Some of us tried the finished product and look forward to trying it again during our Greek Feast this afternoon.
In the kitchen we folded the slimy,oily pastry into a right angle triangle.The onion made my eyes water and drip.once we finished the first tray we continued with on going triangles. When they came out of the oven they had turned in to delicious looking Spanikopata!
When we arrived at Hades its was time to make Garlic Roasted Potatoes. Firstly we took the potatoes and carefully cut them.We didn’t peel the skin off though because apparently they’re very healthy!We chopped the potatoes into yummy looking wedges,not too thin but not too thick. Next we poured some sour lemon juice onto the slices and mixed it all together, it smelt delicious! We grated some garlic into the sweet smelling mixture and it started to look really nice! We shook some oregano onto the potatoes and it was ready to go in the oven!
When we (Tigers) arrived at Hades, we didn’t know what to expect. We were going to make Horiatikisalata (A Greek salad) I thought the name was a bit strange considering it tasted so great! We put lots of ingredients into the salad. We got to try a bit. It was the best thing I have ever tasted!
Then Tigers went down to the hall to make some yummy Greek biscuits (Kourabiedes) which really was our masterpiece! The smell was enchanting,with the icing sugar sprinkled like snow on mountain Olympus! Us Greeks sure do know how to cook!!! We molded them into crescents but we were only allowed to have a small amount of dough which was weird because in the pictures they were absolutely MASSIVE but you’d never guess this, they puffed up into things that looked like balloons all blown up! We all really loved this Greek cooking session and we all wish that we could do it all again!
Next was the feast! We started with a Greek dance competition. All the groups did amazingly including creativity while managing to make it flow. After lots of hard work, Tigers (Merit group) managed to pull off 3 perfect tens. Next Now it was time to eat! Our feast consisted of lots of delectable foods from ancient Greece. We took our time making the most luxurious food for the great banquet.
After an exhausting but fun day, we reluctantly came back to the present day…
