Tamaki College Book Review


LS2 have been looking at books to read on the Tamaki College Overdrive. The T.C. Overdrive is like a digital library which is filled with books from all genre's. I was having a look at the books and one really caught my eye. It was the Library of Souls which is the third novel of the Miss Peregrine series. This book is the best seller in New York with over 5 million copies sold. I read 15 minutes of this book and I really want to read more. This great book is a thriller and has a bit of romance. Critics say 'it's action-packed and accented by strange photos, this final book in Ransom Riggs' Gothic thriller trilogy is complicated, spine-tingling, violent, and romantic.'

Mini Spaghetti Pies With Mrs Heka


"We are making mini spaghetti pies," Mrs Heka announced. (I honestly didn't know what she was talking about.) She fired instructions at us and Ofa, Miki and I were running around like headless chicken getting the ingredients and the required utensils. This week it was harder because we were working with pastry and pastry is pretty delicate. The process was pretty long and it required a lot of energy. I did not know cooking takes a big toll out of you but it did not stop me and my partners. We work very hard and we made very high quality food. The pies were so DELICIOUS!!!

Making Oreo Milkshakes With Mrs Heka


Finally! Cooking with Mrs Heka is such an unforgettable experience. We have been making Oreo milkshakes in a huge commercial kitchen at Tamaki College. The milkshakes were so delicious and working with partners were great because less running around like a headless chicken. Being in a commercial kitchen is so fun but in a commercial kitchen the cleaning must be at high standards and to remember what is the tea towel and what is the polisher is quite confusing. This is just the beginning and I can't wait to see what we have coming. Next week we are baking and that is exciting.
