Waitrose Chicken and Fish Demonstration – Year 10 GCSE Food

On Wednesday 14th November we welcomed Waitrose to demonstrate portioning a whole chicken and filleting fish.


It proved really valuable in many ways, from finding out about careers at Waitrose, to the technique of portioning and filleting fish, and the ways to save money by buying a whole chicken and portioning it yourself. A whole chicken may cost £7 but just fillets can be £5 on their own! While I did not mind watching the demo, some students did find the gutting of the fish quite difficult due to the blood and the beady eye staring at them!  - Harvey Carter Year 10 Student
