Primary pupils get egg-cited by visit

Posted in on 29th Mar 2019 by Northcote | 1 Comment

A taste of life as a chef gave students at Chatburn Primary School a new perspective.

Our executive chef Lisa Goodwin-Allen and head cookery school tutor Bruno Birkbeck visited the school to give them an egg-citing insight into working as a chef.

Class Three and Four learned about different kinds of eggs; from quail to ostrich, then it was time to put on their aprons and cook! Pupils each made scotch eggs; one with a quail egg and one with a hen’s egg, and baked their own mini carrot cakes, complete with marzipan carrots and frosting to take home.

The visit formed part of the Adopt a School Programme, an initiative of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts to feed childrens’ hunger to learn more about food.

Lisa said: “It’s great to go back to school and help to spark an interest in food. The pupils were really engaged while learning about where our food comes from, and to be able to get stuck in and make their own food is an important step at a young age. They could even be the young chefs of tomorrow!”

    I know a lovely school in the Yorkshire Dales that would love to do this. Fancy a day in the picturesque village of Settle?
