Part of Lesson Plan: Making Pudding
Activity Overview / Details
"Now that you know how to make a general pudding, it is time to plan the lab for tomorrow. Everyone will be making the same recipe for Vanilla pudding with a slight modification... kitchen 2 will use WHOLE MILK, kitchen 3 will use 2% MILK, kitchen 4 will use 1% MILK, kitchen 5 will use NONFAT MILK, and kitchen 6 will use SOY MILK. Don't moan and groan if you don't like vanilla pudding or if you don't want to use this kind of milk, the purpose of this lab is comparison, you will be trying every group's pudding."
Hand out the general vanilla pudding recipe to each student and have them write in the type of milk they have been assigned. Review the recipe and the steps, they will be similar to the steps Alton Brown went over in the video.
Students will work as a group to divide up the jobs (according to lab plan) and write up the lab plan. In my class their are 4-5 students in each lab group. The job categories I use are: Executive Chef, Sous Chef, Line Chef, and Sanitation Officer(s). Modify this part if you set up your lab differently.
Students are to have the completed plan in their folder by the end of the period. (sample of my lab plan is attached). Remind students that the lab is tomorrow. Come dressed for lab (hair up, closed toed shoes, clean apron) and be on time and ready to work.
