I cooked the meals all in one week. I had my mom and dad review my cooking methods and recipes. The feedback I got on the meals were positive.
After each meal, ask a person you served to evaluate the meal on presentation and taste, then evaluate your own meal. Discuss what you learned with your counselor, including any adjustments that could have improved or enhanced your meals. Tell how planning and preparation help ensure a successful meal.
One feedback for the roast that I cooked was it could have used more seasoning to give it move flavor.
