55 Minutes

From the Teachers TV series Chef Challenge, this video follows shows professional chef Michael Coaker working with students at Rosedale College, West London. Michael is working with the school as part of the Chefs Adopt a School project and has been challenged to complete a dish in one 55 minute food technology lesson. Initially Michael assists Denise Buttigieg, Head of Food Technology, as her Year Nine students cook lemon curd tartlets. Michael takes the next lesson with this class himself and decides to pair the students to make both the pastry and filling for a spinach and ricotta pasty. Again, the pace is frantic and shows that even with the best facilities and a chef on hand, cooking in 55 minutes is a challenge.
