4 White- Farm to fork visit

Hi 4White!

Today we visited Tesco at the Ricoh arena. We were learning about how our food gets from the farm and onto our plate. We were lucky enough to visit the bakery, the fishmongers and the cheese counter. 

We walked around the warehouse and the fridge/freezer store cupboards. What type of food did we see in the freezer and the fridges? Why?

At the fishmongers, we watched a fish being filleted. What did this mean? You were given the opportunities to ask the fishmonger your own questions. What did you learn?

In the bakery, we saw all of the machinery which was involved in mixing, proofing and baking the bread.  How many loaves of bread do Tesco at the Ricoh bake each week? What did the baker use to help the bread to rise? How many types of bread can you name?

Finally, we visited the cheese counter. There were so many cheeses to choose from! We smelt Stilton cheese. What did it smell of? What had been injected into the Stilton cheese? We even got to taste some of the cheese. Which cheese did you prefer? Write adjectives to describe the cheese.

What did you think of our trip? What have you learnt?

    Thank you for the great clip.

  10. Farm to fork visit

    In the fridge we saw lots of different milks, yogurts, juice and some cakes which were stored in the cages. They are kept in the fridge so they were ready to use also to become fresh.
    The objects that were in the freezer were ice – cream , pies, peas and sweetcorn. This is because these items must be stored in the freeze because they need to be fresh and last long on the store shelf or fridge.

    An fishmonger is a man that fillets all the fresh fish, and places them on display. He also an cut a fish to any size or fillet shape. They need to be trained and they use sharp knives and must be careful all time.

    At tesco, they bake around 8000 loafs of bread each week. They have many ovens this allows them to bake fresh bread for the customer. The baker uses smelly, fresh yeast this allows the bread to rise. They have Italian bread, flat bread, brown bread, rolls, wholemeal bread.

    I think they add good bacteria into the stilion cheese, then they leave it so it matures and takes the mouldy blue colour in the cheese. The smell of the cheese was really horrible.

    The cheese I liked was Eden cheese because it taste really fantastic and the colour is deep yellow. The beautiful, taste cheese was really nice because of its colour and it was like the lovely baby bell cheese.
