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.

This was our final cooking session this term with this group.  We had a very busy session making our own pizzas from scratch, accompanied by the best and cheesiest garlic bread.  We finished off with blueberry muffins which turned out as light as a feather and very tasty.  Don’t forget to visit the Cooking Club’s infamous sprout game at the school bazaar on 8 December.

This week at Cooking Club we made sausage rolls and cheese and onion quiche.  We did make our own pastry but slightly cheated with a pre-mixed fat and flour combo.  Both dishes were a success with some children tucking into the cheese and onion quiche having declared their dislike of onions!  Dishes always taste better when you have cooked them yourself.  Don’t forget to visit the increasingly popular seasonal ‘Sprout’ game hosted by the Cooking Club team at the Christmas Bazaar.

We were very busy at Cooking Club this week making three dishes.  One group made individual cottage pies whilst another made Boston-style baked beans, which are delicious.  To finish we had a very colourful fruity yoghurt cup, which was made with strawberries, raspberries and blackberries.

There was only four in our new group this week, but they worked hard and cooked some lovely food.  One group made Roasted Squash Soup and the other Paella (without the seafood!).  Both were delicious.  The delicious aroma was still evident in school this morning.

We had a few technical problems with our camera this week, these are the best we could publish.

All will be ok for next week.

This was our final week for this group at Cooking Club.  We made noodle and sweetcorn soup, veggie fajitas and to finish scones, both plain and with fruit.  We will be back again after half term with a new group of children.

We made Toad in the Hole this week and the batter really rose to the occasion.  This was accompanied by a delicious ratatouille which included a home-grown courgette donated by Mrs Buttress.  To follow our batter theme we finished off with pancakes, most of which did not make it home.

This week we made an ambitious paprika chicken stew with herby dumplings.  The dumplings puffed up beautifully and were light and very tasty.  For pudding we made a very seasonal apple and blackberry crumble with homemade custard.  The custard was a little thin despite a very long time stirring!  It still tasted like custard!

Cooking Club met for the first time this school year.  We made a delicious curry – chicken Rogan Josh, easy Pilau rice and naan bread.  Some of the children had not been to the club before but they all managed very well with the preparation and washing up.  Keep an eye out for what is cooking over the next few weeks.
