Maybe the Masterchefs of the Future

Posted on Saturday 21 January 2017 by Webmaster

Darren Tinkler from Roots to Food spent the day with our KS2 pupils teaching them about food nutrition, as well as giving them an opportunity to prepare a range of ingredients and then cook a balanced and healthy meal they would be able to replicate at home- Oriental Honey and Orange Meatballs with Vegetable Chow Mein and a sweet and sour sauce. 
They worked in teams and shared all aspects of the preparing, as well as the eating! Some pupils were quick to say they wouldn't like the meal, but with encouragement they tried it and there certainly wasn't any food left over at the end!
Thank you to Mrs Sharp and Sharon for their time and efforts in organising and helping to ensure the day ran smoothly. Everyone enjoyed the day and we are very much looking forward to the Gala Dinner the children will be preparing later in the year.
(Please see the News section on the website for the recipe so you can make it at home too!)
