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┬áreally 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?
