I would recommend this resource to anyone who is about to embark on the food science section of the course. It provides easy to understand scaffolded food challenges that help prepare learners for assessment and reinforce theoretical content.

It is clearly laid out and easy to follow it clearly identifies the links to food science and learning outcomes at the start of every food challenge.

The teacher instructions/plan is easy to follow and save valuable planning time great for a non-specialist to get a foothold into food science and the NEA 1.

The resource benefit the students enormously by bring the specification to life and allowing practical learning and understanding to take place. Each challenge is clearly written to cater for the all abilities with the top students being pushed further with the extension questions which link the science behind the practical challenge. bringing learning to life!

Written in very accessible style, with lots of related questions to support the theoretical aspect of the course. The check sheets of method allow for students to manage their time throughout each challenge.

This resource aids with the underpinning knowledge and understanding needed to ensure that learners are fully prepared for this course with a combination theory and practical based challenges.
