Your Cheesecake Recipe

Here is a basic recipe to get you started. Experiment with making your cheesecake a few times, trying out changes you would like to make. Write down your recipe each time until you are happy with it.

Name your recipes:

  • Cheesecake recipe version 1

  • Cheesecake recipe version 2...

Paste each version of your recipe into your portolio, with photos of the results, and comments about how the cheesecake turned out. đź“—


Making food that's safe for people to eat.

Test Your Food Safety Know-How

  • Watch this Jamie Oliver clip "What NOT to do in the kitchen".

  • Write down as many food safety errors as you think of (I got 21).

  • Now watch the other 2 clips, then revisit your list and see if you get more.

(Hint: 2 errors to do with a knife, 5+ errors to do with personal hygiene habits, 1 error to do with kitchen attire, 2 errors to do with safety, 7+ errors to do with contamination, a few other errors...)

Making Your Food Safe

Here is a template about food safety. There are different aspects:

  • Kitchen Clothing - clean kitchen clothing, footwear, apron...

  • Personal Hygiene - washing hands, not touching face...

  • Health & Safety - oven gloves to prevent burns...

  • Food Safety - covering food to prevent contamination...

Checking the final cheesecake ticks all the boxes.

My CHEESECAKE Specifications

Your Cheesecake Specifications

Your final cheesecake will be measured against each of these specifications. It must meet all of these to pass the assessment.

Write down how you think your final cheesecake outcome meets each specification in the "student judgement" column.

Insert photos of your finished cheesecake.


Tests to ensure it will be great jam.

Testing testing testing... some examples of different kinds of tests you can do...

  • temperature (use a laser or probe thermometer)

  • colour (use colour charts)

  • viscosity (use a timed funnel and scale, or “upside-down test” or time it sliding off a spoon)

  • sensory testing (taste, texture, sweetness, flavour)

  • moisture content

  • nutritional content

Make a list of the tests you will do, at which points in your processing, what the desired outcome is, and what corrective action you will take if the test shows something is not right.
