Why arrange a food technology school trip?
Memorable, practical experiences with food
Your food technology trip can cover a wide range of topics from the curriculum. Making skills can be covered with an interactive baking demonstration in Normandy.
Alternatively, head to Barcelona, where your students will learn to cook a traditional three course meal.
And your students can learn more about manufacturing and large-scale production by visiting a family-run bakery or chocolate factory in France, the Gallo Pastas Factory in Spain, or a brewery in Belgium.
Your food technology school trip will leave your students with wider knowledge of different types of food and how they are made and they’ll have improved their practical skills too.
Explore different cuisines
Or perhaps you want your students to explore a certain cuisine?
What better way to learn about Italian food than by heading to Naples and Sorrento to see how gelato, mozzarella and pizza are made? Here, your students will discover that the fertile soil of this volcanic area means that the produce is incredible, and the local culinary traditions are simple, allowing the ingredients themselves to shine.
In France, your students will be able to visit traditional bakers, where they’ll discover how important the freshly baked baguette is in French culture. You can also visit chocolatiers, patisseries and fromageries, to find out why artisanal food is still an important element of French cuisine and food culture. And don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit a snail farm, where your students can taste escargot for themselves!
And in Barcelona, your students can explore the unique tradition of tapas, which is a typically Spanish way to enjoy food.
A food technology school trip to New York offers your students the opportunity to experience almost every world cuisine. A real melting pot, the city’s food scene is massively influenced by its history of immigration and the variety of food available here is simply mind-blowing.
Wherever you go and whichever visits and activities you choose to include, your food technology school trip will leave your students with a greater appreciation of the diversity of international cuisine.
