Hello! I've been getting ready for today's recipe.
I can't wait!
-KNOCK AT DOOR
Hello, Keira. Hello, Alicia.
Do you want to know what delicious recipe
-we're going to cook today?
Today's fantastic recipe is going to be...
-Olive bread. Doesn't that look so scrumptious?
We're nearly ready to make a start but there's one thing
we need to do first. Do you know what it is?
WASH OUR HANDS!
# Roll up your sleeves give your hands a wash
# With ciffy diffy soap splish, splash, splosh!
# Have you done your hands?
# Washed and dried, sleeves rolled up, apron tied?
# What can you do? I can cook! #
-Let's get cooking everyone.
To make our olive bread we're going to need some bread flour.
Give it a wiggle to make sure it's flat.
You can drive it like a steering wheel. Nee-yow!
We're going to add some salt which is this little white pot here.
Put your salt in, everyone.
And now we're going to add some sugar.
Next, we're going to add an ingredient called instant yeast.
This is a magic ingredient because it's going to make
our olive bread rise up when we put it in the oven.
Go down like this. We're going to rise up. One, two, three!
Let's do it again, shall we? This time, you can join in.
Now, let's add the yeast, everyone.
Now give it a good old stir with your fork.
Make sure those ingredients are all mixed in.
What's happened to them now?
They're all gone. They're mixed in.
They're trying to escape!
-Where have they escaped to?
Can you pretend to stir at home like this?
What do you think we're going to need next in the recipe?
Let's put you to the test. Today's ingredient for you to guess.
What do you think it's going to be?
Let me give you some clues.
The missing ingredient for our olive bread comes in different colours.
No, you can't eat balloons!
Let's try again.
The missing ingredient comes in different colours and it's soft.
So, could it be...?
No, you can't eat sponges!
Let's try one more time.
The missing ingredient comes in different colours, it's soft,
and you might find it on a pizza. So, could it be...?
Olives! Did you work it out?
We're going to need olives in our olive bread.
Let's find out more about olives on our computer.
Olives grow on trees in olive groves.
They usually grow in hot dry countries.
When it's time to pick the olives people climb up into the trees
and shake the branches so the olives fall onto sheets
around the bottom of the olive trees.
The leaves and twigs that have fallen with the olives are taken out
and the olives are collected and sorted before going to the shops.
We've got some olives here.
Our olives are black and they've had the stone taken out of them.
What do you think the olives look like?
Beads? Could you make an olive necklace?
And then eat it.
Now tear them up with your fingers like this.
And add them to your bowl of flour.
There you go. Nice.
Brilliant. That's excellent.
We're going to use a herb called Rosemary.
It looks like little leaves but they smell delicious.
Take the leaves and smell them in your hand.
-What does it smell like?
It looks like lavender but it smells delicious.
It's going to add lots of flavour to our olive bread.
Sprinkle in your leaves.
It's like leaves falling in the autumn.
Going to rain now.
We're going to give it a mix and hide the olives and rosemary.
Off you go, guys.
Make sure those leaves have disappeared.
Go away leaves and go away olives.
With our fork, we're going to make a hole in the middle of our flour.
We're going to make a pond.
I do it with my hands?
You can do it with your hands, if you want.
And we're going to add some warm water into the hole and make a pond.
It's gonna soak in in a minute.
And next we're going to put in some olive oil.
It makes patterns when you're pouring.
What does it look like?
Egg yolks? Now we're going to give it a good mix
until it's nice and sticky.
Twist and stiff.
-I love sticky things, don't you?
I like sticky food.
It's sticking to my fork.
-Keira, what does your mixture remind you of?
I've got the whole mixture.
We need to get all the water to mix with the flour.
Can you do sticky fingers?
Sticky gloopy fingers like me.
Can you do sticky fingers as well, like this?
We're going to put our dough onto the mat.
Pull it out with your fingers.
It's a bit sticky!
We're going to stretch it out like this, like butterfly wings.
And then pull it into the middle like that.
And then flip it over like a pizza and do it again.
Butterfly wings and pull into the middle.
I'll fly it up in the air and then spin back over.
If it's a bit sticky, you can sprinkle a bit of flour.
Only a little bit.
This is called kneading.
We need to keep doing it until our dough is smooth.
This is really good exercise for your fingers.
What does it remind you of, Dylan?
Making my tea with daddy.
Aw, that's nice.
When your dough looks nice and smooth,
you can put it back in your bowl.
And now we're going to cover our dough with a clean tea towel
and put it somewhere warm.
We're going to wait for the yeast to work its magic
and the dough to rise up.
Look, everyone! Let's see if our dough has risen.
Look! It's got bigger! Can you see?
What's happened to your dough?
-How did it grow?
Next, we're going to take a baking tray I've oiled
and tear off bits of the dough.
We're going to roll them in our hand to make little balls.
I'm going to do ten hundred million!
And they need to be about this size.
About the size of a bouncy ball.
It's really stretchy now.
We want to make eight olive bread balls.
Don't make them too close otherwise they'll stick together.
That's a good tip, Dylan.
Sticky gloopy glop.
All of your olive balls need to be the same size.
Pia, how many balls have you made all ready?
Can you count them?
One, two, three, four, five, six.
Six. Now you need to make two more.
And now we're going to put our dough into a hot oven for 15 minutes
so it will turn into bread.
Remember, with ovens beware because it's hot in there
so get an adult to help you.
# I can cook! #
-Whilst our olive bread it cooking, it's time to...
It's always good to put away so we can use things another day.
So now it's time to remember what we've made today.
# Olives, little tiny fruits that one can put in dough
# And knead it to go in the oven
# Olives now inside the dough
# We knead it on the flour and leave it for an hour in the oven
# Olives hiding in the bread now Rising very slow
# There's magic in the dough in the oven. #
# I can cook! #
Our olive bread has cooked and while it cools down...
LET'S LAY THE TABLE!
The bread's cooled and it's time to eat.
The bread is cooled, it looks a treat.
It's time to taste and time to eat.
I'm going to put some butter on mine.
-Dylan? What do you think of your olive bread?
-Pia, what do you think of yours?
Keira, what was your favourite part of the cooking?
I like when we squished it so it was sticky and messy.
Our olive bread is delicious. We did it!
WE CAN COOK!
I can't wait to see you all again soon.
Just remember that you can cook too!
This is really delicious, isn't it?
What about the olives or the rosemary?
-I like the olives.
-I liked the olives.
-My favourite bit's the rosemary.
I've got one olive here.
