Staple Foods

Food Technology – Term 3 week 5


“The Staples”


This week, in line with our “Living World” kaupapa, we have explored the role of ‘staple foods’ in our diet.  We have considered how the traditional staple foods have been very much influenced by the rich cultural diversity of modern Aotearoa and the availability of food through our supermarkets. This week we made Fried Rice.
