Evaluation on pasta
When I cooked my pasta I forgot some of my ingredients therefore I had to use my initiative and cooked it the way that I thought would be best to complement all the ingredients that I had brought with me in the end it all turned out alright this is reflected in the star profiles of when other people tasted it. Next time I cook it I might add either tuna or meatballs this will enhance the flavours and also give it more depth taste wise. When I was presenting my pasta I put them in the middle of my plate and arranged them so that they were in a square in the middle, after that I got a piece of tissue and wiped the edges of the plate where there was some sauce. I did this so that my dish looked professional and more appealing to the eye. In the lesson I had set my self a time frame so that I would have enough time to clean the dishes. My time frame was thirty minutes which I abided by and ended up finishing 15 minutes early which was a strength because I got more time to finish cleaning up my area. The recipe was easy to follow because the steps were clear and easy to read this is because the language used in the text was not too formal. When other people tasted my food they complemented me on the use of Italian herbs, I got no criticism, which I was pleased with. I would say that some of my strengths were that I used my initiative and used the ingredients that I had and I did not let forgetting some of the ingredients affect the final product (pasta dish). A weakness would be the fact that I forgot some of the ingredients. Next time id o my dish I will look to improve my preparation making sure that I do not forget any ingredients. taste | 5 | 5 | Appearance | 4 | 4 | Texture | 5 | 4 | smell | 5 | 5 | This is my star profile where people scored out of 5 on how my food tasted, looked, smelled and the texture. The first one was done by Leon and the second by vikram. The sensory analysis chart shows that overall the people who tasted my food gave good feedback and it also shows that the only thing that they marked me down on was the appearance which I received fours from both Leon and vikram and also that vikram marked me down on the texture of my pasta this is because he said that it wasn’t the way he would have liked it cooked and that he would have preferred it to be a bit softer.
Evaluation on egg fried rice
When I cooked my egg fried rice everything was prepared well therefore when I was cooking nothing went wrong. The only thing that I did not use was the prawns this is because I thought that they would over power the taste of the egg fried rice. One thing that I would do differently next time would be to add chicken which would add more flavour and texture to the dish. I found the recipe easy to follow this is because it had been laid out in a bullet point format which meant that I could read the entire step without any difficulties. When other people tasted my dish the only criticisms they had was that they would have like more egg. When I was preparing my dish I set my self a time frame which was there to make sure that I had left myself some time to clean up after myself. My time frame was 20 minutes in the end I finished in 15 minutes which was 5 minutes earlier than I had anticipated. When I tasted the dish the aromatic oriental spices stood out and really gave great depth to the taste. The planning for the dish was good this is because I kept my self organised therefore I knew what I had to be doing at all times. Some of the strengths and weaknesses that I had were: I used my own blend of oriental spices to add to the flavour because if I had only used salt like the way that the method was instructing me then my dish would have been tasteless and bland. A weakness was that even though by adding my own spices the flavour was enhanced it also means that I did not follow one of the instructions that I had been given in the method.
This is my star profile where people scored out of 5 on how my food tasted, looked, smelled and the texture. The first one was done by Leon and the second by vikram. The sensory analysis chart shows that I was only marked down on my texture by both taster’s vikram and Leon. They both said that the rice would have been better if it had been cooked for a couple minutes so that it could be fluffier. Overall the sensory analysis chart shows that the tasters enjoyed my food because they both only picked out one thing.

Evaluation on nutella crepes
When I cooked my nutella crepes everything went the way that I had planned the only thing that I would have done differently would be to have changed the amount of batter that I pout in the pan so that the crepes would turn out thinner. When I was presenting my crepes I stacked some without nutella spread and on the top I folded two crepes which did have nutella spread on this was so that the dish could also be interactive meaning that people could spread the amount of nutella spread that they wanted. When people tasted my crepes I got good feedback the only piece of criticisms that I received was that some of the crepes were too thick therefore next time I will adjust the amount of batter in the pan so that they can be the thinner. I think that I did well when I was cooking the crepes because I managed my time well by following the instructions and being efficient when preparing my mixture for the crepes. I was really organised when I was cooking because I had accurately prepared all of my food items. I would say that some of my strengths and weaknesses were that: even though one or two of my crepes were too thick, the majority of them were thin the way crêpes are meant to be. A weakness is that my first two crepes were too thick but I see this as a mistake that I can learn from so next time I cook crepes I will learn from my mistake by not putting too much batter into the pan. Also next time I cook the crepes I could flambé them which would add more depth and taste to the crepes.
This is my star profile where people scored out of 5 on how my food tasted, looked, smelled and the texture. The first one was done by Leon and the second by vikram. The sensory analysis chart shows that they tasters thought that my crepes were good and that their only criticisms were that some of the crepes were too thick and they advised me to use less batter when cooking each crepe next time I prepare this dish. The tasters marked me down by 1 on my texture and vikram marked me down by one on the taste of the actual crepe it self and he said that he would have liked the crepe itself to be a bit sweeter so that it could contrast the flavour of the nutella.
