Final Evaluation

Introduction

Final Evaluation Now that I have finished my project I can evaluate it fully. I can look back at each aspect of my project and I can decide what went well and what didn't. I have learnt a great deal whilst completing this project. Creating dishes that I would not have had the chance to if I had not initiated this project, has helped to refine my cooking techniques and has matured my culinary skills. I now feel more confident when in the kitchen preparing dishes as my cooking ability has improved. I began my project by brainstorming various occasions that are celebrated throughout the world. By doing this I was able to gather a list of different occasions that I could then gather some background information on. I researched several of these celebrations, discovering the various traditions associated with them, focusing my attention on the foods connected with the celebrations. The general research on celebrations I carried out at the beginning of my project went well. ...read more.

The research I carried out indicated to me that the food served at a wedding is an important factor to making the day run smoothly. By carrying out this project I wanted to discover whether it is better to offer a formal sit down meal, or a more cost effective buffet. Weddings can be very expensive events, and it is important that the occasion is budgeted properly; the couple could potentially save a lot of money by offering an informal buffet instead of a sit down meal. After looking through various wedding menu's I found on the internet, both for sit down meals and a buffet, I chose various dishes I would like to create within my project. I created dishes that would specifically suit a formal sit down meal, dishes that would specifically suit an informal buffet, and versatile dishes that would suit either. Before I began creating these dishes I needed to collect recipes from different sources and write them up onto planning sheets. ...read more.

Conclusion

The quirky icing heart decoration I made on the top of each fairy cake links the dish to the celebration perfectly. The cheesecake I made would suit either a buffet or a formal sit down meal within a wedding menu. The red and white colours of the cheesecake share connotations with the theme of love; this is an ideal quality for a wedding dish. The cheesecake could be laid on a buffet table, where guests could take a slice as they pleased, alternatively slices of the cheesecake could be served as a dessert within a formal sit down meal. I believe that the dishes I chose to create were well chosen and suited my task title well; they would all suit a wedding menu very well. I think that I carried out my project well and I thoroughly enjoyed myself whilst completing it. If I were to repeat this project I would consider carrying out more practicals, allowing myself to fully explore different approaches to wedding dishes. I would also like to carry out more extensive background research on my celebration, allowing me to fully understand the occasion I am exploring. Katie Meally ...read more.
