September foods 12 lab reflection

For this months reflection I chose to reflect on the sunflower crepes. This has been my favourite recipe we’ve done so far, not only is it pretty simple to make but it also tastes amazing. They are the perfect balance of sweet and savoury. Even though they did not turn out perfectly, they were still really fun to make. While we were placing the crepes in the cup cake tray some of the bottoms ripped cause some of the egg to seep throuh the crepe and stick to the tray when we tried to take them out. The execution of taking them out of the tray was the most difficult part of the whole lab. Most of our crepes were stuck to the bottom of the tray causing them to rip even further and making them look more like an egg explosion on our plates rather then a sun flower. Throughout this lab our group worked very well together. As soon we got in the kitchen we had one person working on the bacon, one on the green onions, one on eggs and cheese, and one assembling the crepes after everything was complete. Once one person finished there duty they started right away on the dishes and cleaning as we went along, and once the crepes were in the oven everyone worked together to clean the unit and take the green wast out. Being a rather simple lab I wouldn’t say there were any issues and things ran very smoothly. How ever if I were to do this lab all over again I would not have left the crepes to sit in the fridge for so long. I understand that it was important to let the crepes cool, but I think that leaving the crepes in fridge made them a little ridged and harder to fold into the baking sheet.
