Foods 11 October Lab Reflection

CALZONES LAB

       Out of all the labs we did in October, I chose the Calzone lab because in my opinion it was the most exciting and “cooking-intensive” lab. We were also pretty familiar with each other in our new group, which I think helped us since we were more productive and finished things faster. I really enjoyed the lab. The Calzones turned out really big, and there was a lot to eat! They were very tasty and smelled good too. It was also fun making the filling separately, then putting it in and folding it over before putting it in the oven.

       Despite what happened in the oven, it turned out to my liking. When we put it in the oven, mine exploded in a spot and started to act like a volcano, but in the end it didn’t really lose much filling, and tasted pretty good! The only thing that was a bummer was cleaning off the pan after it exploded. I think it helped that it didn’t explode in the middle, but more off to the side. I think that our group worked pretty well together. Sometimes there is next to no communication but we still end up achieving a good product, and still work as a team. If I was to make this again, I would add more filling to the ends, since in mine, near the end there was next to no filling. I think to fix this I would need to add more filling to the ends, even if it looks like it would not close. Over all, this was by far my favourite lab.
