The Faculty of Eatucation
New Cross Summer 2018
Format: Single Room
Synopsis: It was back to school for Gingerline as the Professor, Lab Tech and Guidance Councillor took budding students through their Diploma in Delicious Dining at The Faculty of Eatucation. Divided into houses, students claimed potato points for their team by answering questions in their workbooks on the course’s five topics: Culinary Catalyst, Flavourality, Sense Manipulation, Maxi-wave and Dessert Technology (DT).
Priding itself in being at the forefront of a 90’s education, the Faculty’s interactive programme included, transforming mini-morsels into mountainous meals with the Colander Collider©, blindfolded taste tickling and an informative Sense Ed video, making sure students wore protection (gloves) when ‘experimenting in the kitchen’.
Completing their course with the creation of a piece of edible artwork, the points were totted up and potato points badges were awarded to the winning house. Having completed their Diplomas, the tables were pushed aside for school photos and the legendary FOE School Disco complete with glitter ball and Tina Tuna playing from the boom box until 11pm.
