This morning we are busy cooking. We are going to have a mini party this afternoon where we get to eat some of the food we make. So far, we have made pizza and chocolate chip cookies!
We took turns spreading tomato sauce onto pizza bases and sprinkling cheese… It turns out we like our pizzas very cheesy!
There’s lots of science in cooking that we hadn’t realised! Cheese and chocolate melts with heat which causes it to change it’s shape. We know there are some changes of state that take place when heat is applied that can be changed, like ice melting. That is a reversible change. But cooking is an irreversible change meaning that we can’t change the ingredients in cookies back into their original forms once they’ve been cooked.
Cooking involved teamwork as well as science. We are looking forward to tasting our creations!
