Vietnamese Spring Rolls

I think this lab was one of the hardest lab I had. For this lab we prepared the veggies that we are going to put in a rice paper. After the veggies are prepared we poured the rice paper into a warm water for a few seconds and took it out and put it on a plate. On a rice paper we put a vermicelli on a top and veggies on top of vermicelli and the suffer starts. While we are rolling the rice paper it starts to rip off a part and the stuff inside are about to come out of the rice paper. The first roll was good but the second one got massed up. It was impossible to fix and made look better so I cut it in half. I don’t think I will make this again I would just buy the one that is made already.

Chocolate Cheese Cake

For this lab, we made cheese cake with some options to put in. The options were zests of lemon, cocoa, and just plain cheese cake and I chose cocoa. We baked the bread first and added fillings after and baked again. Since I like chocolate it was good for me but for my mom it was little bitter. Maybe the plain cheese cake was better for me too, but it was worth to try and it wasn’t bad. I enjoyed it. I’m not sure if I would make this again but if I make this again I would make plain cheese cake.

Sushi

For this lab we made sushi with bamboo mat. We cooked the rice first and prepared other ingredients. After all the ingredients are ready to roll, we put a bamboo mat on a table and put a nori on top. We evenly flatted rice on top of nori and other veggies on top of rice. We slowly rolled the sushi while tucking in all the ingredients. The first sushi got rolled very well but the second one didn’t. I liked making it and eating it. I only ate sushi watching my mom making it, it was a good experience. I would make this again with other ingredient.

Christmas Cookies

For the week, we made different types of Christmas cookies. We made gingerbread, Chocolate Biscotti, snickerdoodle, and shortbread cookies. All the cookies weren’t that hard to make except gingerbread. For gingerbread cookie it was hard to keep its shape since my dough was little to thin. Other than that everything was good. I liked the shortbread the most. I liked the butter flavour. the least favourite cookie was the snickerdoodle, I didn’t really like the cinnamon. Chocolate biscotti was also pretty good. Personally I like chocolate so it was very good even dough it was very sweet. I like the most of cookies, it was enjoyable to make and eat and I would made shortbread cookies again at home later.
