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 week we made Oaty Salmon Fishcakes, roast potato wedges and to finish some very tasty mini pancakes smothered in chocolate sauce.  Look out for what we will be cooking at our final session next week.

 We cooked Mixed Vegetable Pie, Apple Crumble and homemade custard.  We were most impressed with the custard as it actually thickened which has not happened before.

 Some of the children took apples home last week and made toffee apples, apple crumble and apple turnovers.  We tasted them at the end of our session and were very impressed.  We may give them homework again.

A new Cooking Club group started this week.  With the cold weather here we made some warming and comforting food – Parsnip and Apple Soup with Parsnip Crisps and Lamb and Lentil Moussaka.  Mrs Buttress very kindly donated some locally grown apples but, as we ran out of time, each pupil took home two apples to transform into something delicious before next week.  We are looking forward to trying the different creations.

This was our last week with this group.  We made the unusual savoury flapjack with grated cheese and carrot – which smelt and tasted delicious.  We also cooked Leek and Pasta Bake – very tasty.  Back after half term with a new group of children.

 Week 3 and we cooked chilli beef wraps and a saffron-spiced rice pudding.  The pudding took us a lot longer than we thought, but it was really tasty.

This week we cooked a Paprika Chicken Stew with Herby Dumplings.  It was delicious and we were very impressed with the dumplings.  We also made a very seasonal apple and blackberry (picked locally) crumble. The children couldnt wait for it to come out the oven!

 We started a brand new Cooking Club this week with some new Year 3s.  They cooked Mulligatawny soup, soda bread and baked apples.  We saw some excellent knife skills and they even washed up beautifully.

Our last week for Cooking Club and the very last time for this year’s Year 6s.  We had a very special session as we were cooking for our guests.  They were served Mozzarella and red pepper tarts, roast potato wedges with coleslaw.  This was followed by a cup of tea or coffee served with shortbread. They all seemed very happy with their meal.  Thank you to everyone who has supported the cooking club over this last year.  Watch out for the letter next term and come and join us.
