 HEIA/McCormick Flavour Forecast Recipe Challenge

The HEIA and McCormick Flavour Forecast Recipe Challenge is a real-life design challenge that addresses the Home Economics curriculum. This year, on Tuesday 8 May, we offered a free webinar to provide some additional hints and tips for a successful submission.

Throughout the webinar, participants heard from a teacher who has successfully entered and engaged their Year 9 and Year 10 students in the challenge: the planning involved; scheduling lessons around the challenge; top 5 tips for a successful entry. Participants also heard what judges are looking for in the entries received, and a representative from McCormick briefly outlined the Flavour Forecast trends.
