This term for our Manaiakalani staff PD, the whole cluster was invited to Tamaki College for the afternoon to spend some time engaging in a fun create task or two. I signed up to make Vietnamese spring rolls.
We were split into groups of 4 and put into kitchens around the room to work. Each kitchen was responsible for prepping the ingredients needed to make various types of spring rolls. We were in the shrimp kitchen. My job was to cook the vermicelli noodles, dice the lettuce and then I split the prepped veges into two different serving dishes.
After learning how to prep the rice shell, we were given time to explore the various ingredients and make our own spring rolls to sample. We had a lot of fun and I look forward to making these again in the future.
