When students are disappointed with the outcome of their cooking, it’s great to offer support, encouragement, and constructive feedback. Let’s explore some useful comments. 

  1.  “I understand that you’re disappointed with how the dish turned out but remember that cooking is a learning process. We all make mistakes, and it’s a valuable opportunity for growth.
