FPC COOKING CLASS (FCC) makes processed food products based on fishery products, namely processed food odeng from mackerel fish where odeng is currently viral because of its soft texture and so delicious, especially when added with savoury and hot sauce. This cooking class was held in the food laboratory of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Affairs with a total of 12 participants and 14 organisers.
Cooking odeng began at 08.30 WIB until 12.15 WIB was paused to carry out ishoma (rest, prayer, and eating) and continued at 13.00 WIB to make odeng sauce. Participants were very enthusiastic to see the making of odeng sauce that had been demonstrated by one of the committees. After it was felt that the sauce had boiled, odeng was put into Teflon containing hot sauce and waited for a moment. Not only odeng, the committee also added crab sticks as a complement. When odeng and gravy were cooked, all participants and the committee ate together. The time showed 14.00 WIB followed by a group photo as the closing of the FPC COOKING CLASS event.
The purpose of the FPC COOKING CLASS event is to provide opportunities for participants to interact with each other, especially for 2023 students who are participating in activities at the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Sciences for the first time. It can also open opportunities to share ideas in entrepreneurship and experience in cooking, as well as create a supportive environment for learning and sharing. In addition, the positive side is that it can strengthen the brotherhood between students of the 2021, 2022, and 2023 batches of the Faculty of Fisheries and Marine Affairs, Universitas Airlangga.
Until we meet again. Forza Iwak! Iwak, Iwak, Iwak
