For our Year 6 DT project this term, the children will be designing, making and eating a Ugandan-style meal. The children have already carried out some research on the internet about popular Ugandan foods, but today Mr Stanley prepared some Ugandan food for the children to taste. The food included:
Roast potatoes – In Uganda these are known as Irish potatoes
Sweet potatoes – some of our Ugandan friends refer to them as sweat potatoes
Beef muchomo – pieces of beef marinated in oil, garlic and mild curry powder grilled to perfection.
Plantain chips – Green banana chips lightly salted.
Salad – red onion, carrot & cabbage
Chapatti – made from flour, water with a tiny pinch of salt.
Katchembali – another salad with tomato, green pepper, onion and chilli.
The children took the opportunity to taste all the foods. They then had to complete an evaluation form giving each food a mark out of ten and explaining why they awarded the mark. Next, the children will have to design their own Ugandan plate of food covering the major food groups.
We would like to ask our Ugandan friends what British food would they like to eat?
