|Master Chef Trey Version ～Let’s Make Jalapeño and Capsicum Pizza 1～
―A short time before cooking starts.
|Man, I was surprised that Trey was going to take the Master Chef class.
You’re good at cooking right? Is there anything else you need to learn?
|It’s true I’m used to it.
I make sweets at my dorm, and back home I’d prepare the meals for my busy parents.
|Then why did you try out… oh, I know. You’re just aiming for the credits! Right?|
|Sorry, that’s also wrong.
My motivation for this is to learn to teach how to cook.
|Mmm? So instead of how to cook…. “how to teach”?|
|Yeah. Recently I’ve been teaching my kouhai on how to make the sweets we put out for the Unbirthday Parties.
Until now I’ve been taking the lead on making everything, but when I become a fourth year, I won’t be around most days thanks to the practical training, right?
That’s why while I can, I want to be able to create an environment where I can entrust the sweets-making with some peace of mind.
Somehow, I’m just not that good at teaching. I’m struggling to guide them.
|Really? You seem like you’d be really good at teaching.
Whenever the Dorm Leaders and Vice Dorm Leaders have our meetings, it’s so easy to understand what you’re saying.
|Haha, I’m glad to hear you say that, but whenever it has to do with cooking, it just becomes hard
…I know, let me give you an example. What do you think “hash out the eggs” mean?
|“Hash out?” Do you mean like solve a question with eggs?|
|Yeah, as expected… One of our dorm students responded the same way too.
Hash the eggs mean to mix the white and yellow parts together.
|Eh, I didn’t know at all!|
|See? Just like right now, it seems like there are many expressions that people who have very little cooking experience don’t know.
In fact, there have been times where they understood the meaning differently than how they were taught. For example…
If I ask for them to measure out a tablespoon, I might get asked “How many spoons are enough for a table?”
They took the word table and mistook that to mean “a lot” instead of indicating a specific measurement.
|Uwa― if you told me that, I probably would have mistaken it for “a lot” too.|
|I grew up watching my parents make dinner and sweets…
And if I told my little sister or brother to “hash out the eggs” or “measure out one tablespoon of flour,” everything moved smoothly.
That’s why it doesn’t occur to me to think that those unfamiliar to cooking would stumble over cooking procedures or words in a recipe.
|I see―That’s why you said you wanted to “learn how to teach”|
|Yeah. This is something that had been worrying me for a while, but…
A little while ago, one of our dorm students who tried the Master Chef course became drastically good better at cooking.
I thought that if I also took this program, I might learn the secret of teaching.
|I see～ After hearing that, I’m getting more excited for the Master Chef course.
I hope I’ll be able to get good at cooking too―
|I’m sure you will.
…Oops. The lessons is going to start soon. Kalim, lets move to the kitchen.
|Chef Ghost||Now, I’ll simply explain the cooking process to Trey-kun.|
|Yes, thank you very much.|
|Chef Ghost||Alright! First, mix and knead the flour, and make the pizza dough.
Once you’re finished making it, we need to let the yeast ferment for a little while. In the meantime, start making the tomato sauce.
Once the sauce is made, we mold the pizza dough we let lie earlier. Next, we put on the toppings…
Finally, bake it in the oven we preheated, and it’s done!
Usually from here I explain that in more detail, but you seem like you’re used to it, so that may not be needed.
Do you have any questions or anything you don’t understand?
|I’ve made this back home with my family, so not really… …Oh, wait.
At this point in the explanation, for those who are new to cooking, there might be some points at which they stumble.
Could you please tell me what kind of questions you’ve received from students so far?
|Chef Ghost||Eh, so far? Let’s see…
We have a lot of students who ask for explanations like: Why do we shake the flour? Can’t we mix normally?
A great example is when once a student heard the word “sift through the flour”…
They asked, “I have to sort out the good and bad flecks of flour one by one!?”
I was quite surprised at that.
|I see. So even if I use the phrase “sift through the flour,” there’s guys who might not know the word “sift.”
So when teaching it’s important to clarify the purpose, and to make sure that specialized languages aren’t being used.
Is there anything else that the students have asked you that has surprised you?
|Chef Ghost||The one that surprised me the most is the question you asked～|
|Eh. Did I ask that much of a strange thing?|
|Chef Ghost||Fufufu, that’s because…
That was the first time I’d ever had a student ask me if I’d ever been asked question before～
|Haha… sorry for surprising you.
But, the story you told me earlier of the person who was not that good at cooking is going to be a good reference for me right away.
Thank you, please continue.
