We believe that cooking is a core life skill and our aim is to give everyone the opportunity to learn to cook and enjoy good food.

Cooking club is run by Mrs Rudwick, Mrs Watson and Mrs Wardell for KS2 pupils.

If your child would like to join in the sessions please contact the School office.

We raced through our cooking this week producing chicken noodle soup, mozzarella and red pepper tarts and coleslaw with half an hour to spare.  We squeezed in a food related quiz and some terrible foody jokes to fill the gap.

We cooked our very own Chinese takeaway – sweet and sour chicken, one-pan spicy traffic light rice and Chinese-style vegetable stir fry.  It was all very tasty, not to mention healthy with definitely more than your five-a-day included.

This week we cooked Toad-in-the-Hole, which rose magnificently – just look at the photos.  We also made pancakes in honour of Pancake Day which we enjoyed smeared with chocolate sauce and golden syrup.  We also had a go at Hot Cross Buns, which were quite challenging in the timeframe.  We just about managed to get them into the oven at the end of the session and they tasted delicious fresh out of the oven.

This was our final week with this group. We made sweet red pepper and cheese soup, accompanied by flatbreads with tomato topping. We also made a very tasty apple and cinnamon upside down pudding. There seemed to be a lot of washing up, but we got everything cooked and cleared up in time.

If you would like your child to join our cooking club and they are in Year 3 and above ask at the office. If you have been many times before you are always welcome to come back. We keep a waiting list and take it in turns over the school year so everyone gets a go.

At Cooking Club we made spinach, mushroom and onion lasagne accompanied by the most delicious cheesy garlic bread – we used a cheese none of us had heard of before – Taleggio!  It is like a Camembert but stronger in taste – really yummy.  We also made some chocolate surprise cupcakes – the surprise ingredient was beetroot.

This week we cooked Chilli Beef Wraps and Spiced Mixed Fruit Muffins, both of which were delicious.  We tried flavouring some popcorn and, whilst the popcorn machine worked a treat and the popcorn was very good, the flavourings were not quite so successful.

A new group of cooks started this week.  We made a fabulous paprika chicken stew with herby dumplings, soda bread and houmous.  It was not only very colourful but extremely delicious.  Mrs Watson is off on a cooking course for the club so we are looking forward to some new recipes.  Keep an eye out over the next few weeks.

Our last week with this group.  We made speedy biryani which was really tasty despite Mrs Rudwick over cooking the rice!  We also made lamb and vegetable samosas which were delicious.  Look out for the Cooking Club’s seasonal sprout game at the Christmas Bazaar on 9.12.16!
