Roots to Food
The Upper School and 2 of our teachers took part in Curriculum Cooking Challenge which started with an introduction and questions/answer session on health, well-being and nutrition, mainly focusing on the Eat Well Guide.
Different cooking techniques were looked at, and the importance of breakfast, and a healthy school meal discussed. Ingredients were split into their food groups and a dish chosen for each team to produce a healthy balanced meal focusing on flavours, textures, techniques, colour and presentation. The teams menus, completed as part of the challenge, are shown below as you may like to try them at home!
