How I will tackle this task.

I have been asked to cook one or two sweet or savoury products for this task. I will need to research foods containing yeast. I will have 1 hour to complete the task. I am looking to spend about £4-£6 on my ingredients. Since I already have the correct equipment and enough space to complete this task, therefore I will not need to buy any equipment. I will demonstrate safety skills by completing my task safely in a clean and safe environment. As well as this the key words I have explained will help me to understand the task better not only this will help me ,but a step by step time plan I have created will allow me to follow steps correctly and carefully. I will present my work in an appealing way so that it is eye catching.

Naan Bread

Bread sticks
I have chosen to make Bread sticks; they show good use of yeast since one main part of making bread sticks is being able to raise the breadsticks and requires yeast to do so; this also refers back to the task title yeast.
