Cheese making in EEP


On Thursday last week the Year nine Engineering Excellence class left their classes for the day and  headed to the kitchen instead to make camembert. This process took the whole day to make and will take another 6 weeks to mature. This experience was fun and interesting and quite different to our normal classes or science projects. It involved a lot of attention to detail and focus, especially when it came to keeping clean, I think everyone washed their hands at least 35 times and we were all always wearing aprons and beautiful hairnets. Luckily though it all worked out with 34 camembert cheeses made. On the 13 June, two of the top cheese makers from the class will take the best ten cheeses RNA’s Food and Wine show.  Here they will be judged against other schools from South East Queensland. The cheese will be able to be tasted by the College Community at the College Open Day (19 June 2014).
