Fine Dining

Posted: March 26, 2014 in Foods 1, Recipes

IMG_7200The kiddos have been working hard learning proper table setting and fine dining etiquette. It was time to show off their skills. Our meal five course meal consisted of the following:


Appetizer: Stuffed Pizza Roll


Soup: Italian Wedding Soup


Salad: Tomato Basil on a skewer {#6 edible Italian centerpiece}


Main Entree: No Boil Cheese Lasagna


Dessert: No Bake Oreo Cheesecake

What no, picture for the cheesecake? Mrs. Brown forgot.

Each group doubled the recipes to make enough to serve the entire class, plus a few invited guests, such as administrators.


The orzo in the soup was a hit. We substituted beef for pork.

IMG_7192This group loved the meal.

IMG_7199Thumbs up to a fine meal for 40 students, ringing up at $200, less than $5 per person for a 5 course meal, not too shabby.

I saved some by having them make the pizza dough and meatballs from scratch. It was more time-consuming and tedious for some groups. I might rethink it for future labs and use convenience.

Overall, the kids enjoyed their largest meal of the year 🙂



  1. Looks like an awesome dinner party! I’m glad you guys enjoyed the soup–I’m sure the beef was a fine substitution for the pork. Keep on cooking!
