Thousands of thank to Chef Zaid who has been a wonderful, support and a great guides for our group to complete this project. He has been a very supportive and guide us through these whole semester and completed our experiment every single week until the final of our class. Not just us but from all of the culinary arts student is very thankful to our Chef Zaid.

Young ginger rhizomes are juicy and fleshy with a very mild taste. They are often pickled in vinegar or sherry as a snack or just cooked as an ingredient in many dishes. Fresh ginger can be substituted for ground ginger at a ratio of 6 to 1, although the flavors of fresh and dried ginger are somewhat different. Powdered dry ginger root is typically used as a flavoring for recipes such as gingerbread, cookies, crackers and cakes, ginger ale, and ginger beer.

So a little bit about the ginger. There is so many why of  making many dishes using ginger but for our product is a bit odd in it.

Chicken Ginger Pizza :) ( pollo allo zenzero pizza)

This is our main product for the final :) At first many people thing pizza and ginger is not very chemistry. With our product we going to show how the idea of pizza combine together to create a prefect and healthy food.

The pizza is containing finely chopped of ginger, avocados, beef bacon all of that is for the topping and for the base of pizza is that natural yogurt, egg, freshly ground black paper, and a bit of chicken stock.

To make a prefect pizza it has to got a fine pizza dough. For this pizza we making it thin crust layer so it got that crummy taste.

The main objective is that we are going to achieve something that out of any other idea. We need to introduce to people that not all pizza is using cheese and other ingredient our main idea is to introduce a healthy style kind of food by using ginger part of the ingredient.


Every week our team need to discuses on how to improve our product by using ginger in different kind of pastry dough such as pie, short crust, curry puff, puff pastry, and curry puff pastry. Every week we using the same ingredient except the method of making it. 
 Not just making the product better we try to expend the product just to improved it better. All the idea from the group is totally great. From the every week class we find that we can improved the idea to make the product even better and better.

Organization Chart



The final event is on the 7 April 2011. But before the event we have given 1 week earlier to prepare all the ingredient that need in the final. So for our team the wet and fresh item is not going to be prepare early. The item that we going to prepare early is the dough. The task that we are going to get that is we are going to cook our product for 50 pax of people. So we plan to make the dough early this because the dough is more elastic if it have been kept a long time. Want the dough is finish make we wrap it with a plastic wrap and keep in the chiller for 1 week before the final event. 


On the Thursday 7 April 2011, the day that all of us going to face. But that day all have that confident faces. This event took place inside of the UNIRAZAK Pintar Campus Cafe. This is day that where our product will be judged by all of the student and lecturer in UNIRAZAK Campus.

The event is on the 4.30 pm but we have to started cooking before the event started. We came in the evening so that all the ingredient is ready to cook. The dough that we kept for 1 week is in a very good condition and it smell good. There is one more task for us 2 members of the group from each of the group need to be responsible at the booth for presenting the product, so in our group Hafidz and Farhan is going to it. So left the 3 other member that is Haizad, Amin, and Nur going to be taken charge in the kitchen for food preparation.

This is some of the photo taken during the final event :-

After The Event Day.

 After along day of the event, all group need to headed back to the kitchen to clear and clean up all our station. It felt great that we finally finish the event with successfully felling. From all of the hard work really paid off our group receive a lot of positive comment and a bit of negative comment.

This is some of the photo taken  of the comment card :-

Problem Faced 

We had so many problem during before the event and during the event. But in the end we just need to keep it calm and find a solution to solve it. Before during the final we find out that event the dough is kept perfectly the taste of crust after bake is a bit savory. After a few minute the taste turn to a normal crust taste, we find that maybe before we kept the dough after 1 week the yeast is turn bad or is just natural the dough have to react as it is. During the event we have a bit of a problem of lack time bake other pizza. but we manage to control it. In the end all turn out good :)


Ginger is not a complicated ingredient to use. Just find a fresh ginger that have a good smell that can make the aroma attractive. 


 It have been very excellent experience throughout these class and completing Food Innovation & Design. We learn that creating a new food product not that simple at first. But in the end of this subject we find that from an impossible idea can make it trough even though there is some of problem here and there but we manage to succeed with the help of Chef and friend :)
