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 at cooking club we made a delicious spinach, mushroom and onion lasagne, accompanied by some cheesy, garlicy bread.  We also made a delicious mess with the apple and berry mess – sweet and crunchy.

This week we tackled Noodle and Sweetcorn Soup and Mango Chicken Pittas.  Both delicious and very easy to cook.  We had plenty of time on our hands so had a go and making chocolate chip cookies with the addition of some marshmallows, which had been kindly donated to the school by Mrs Wilson (Sophie’s Mum).  Unfortunately we had a bit of an eruption in the oven and they fell to bits – tasted brill though!  It is good for the children to see that sometimes cooking does not always go to plan.

First week back at the Cooking Club.  We made Lamb and Lentil Moussaka, mini pancakes topped with mascarpone and strawberries and kiwi and shortbread.  It was all really delicious.  If you are interested in any of the recipes you can buy a copy for 50p from the school office.   All proceeds go directly to the Cooking Club.

Our last week with this particular group of cooks!  We made onion soup with cheesy bread and chicken and butternut sage risotto, which tasted excellent despite Mrs Rudwick picking up the wrong type of rice. If you have never been to Cooking Club before just let Mrs Rudwick, Mrs Watson or Mrs Wardell know you are interested in coming along.  Look out for us at the Christmas Bazaar – we will have a couple of fun games for you to play.

Another busy week - we made cod fishcakes, lemon sweet potato wedges and sesame and lemon beans.  Chopping the potatoes was fun! and washing up is all part of the process.  Very tasty!

This week at cooking club we made parsnip and apple soup with parsnip crisps, soda bread and blackberry and apple crumble. We were able to use local, seasonal fruits. There was a lot of chopping to do this week but we saw some excellent knife skills. Here you can see the delicious results of our hard work.

 Christmas Bazaar 2014
