As part of unit two of CAPE Food and Nutrition, close to two dozen Grade 12 and 13 students from St Andrew High School for Girls participated in a sample day on February 28. The practicum gave each student the opportunity to don her entrepreneur hat and develop a new product. The guidelines were straightforward — the products should utilise local ingredients and be market-ready. Along with being innovative, the products had to demonstrate the young ladies' understanding of the principles of food preparation, processing and merchandising. Thursday Food was on location and shares highlights of the well-executed sample day.
