I am very pleased to be able to cook with six Year 5 children every Friday morning in school. I have been lucky enough to attend some training on behalf of the school and I always ensure the recipes are healthy and easy for you to make at home with your children should you wish to do so. If your child cooks with me I send the recipe home for you along with what they have made.
We use some of the lovely things we grow in our garden and of course the eggs from our chickens!
I hope the children will have fun and also learn some valuable skills in the process.
Let's get cooking!
Week 2 - Apple Triangles
We had lots of fun this week making our triangles, hopefully they are as delicious as they smelt! We used the apples from our tree in the school garden.
Week 3 - Potato and sweetcorn fritters
These looked and smelt delicious today and we had a hard time resisting eating them! We used eggs that had been freshly laid by our chickens that morning!
Week 4 -Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies
Final week with this group and we decided we wanted to make cookies! This group are such good chefs now that they barely needed any help with this recipe. Hopefully they taste as good as they smelt!
Group 2 - Potato and sweetcorn fritters The children enjoyed making these and everyone wanted to eat them after they smelt them cooking, hopefully some of them got home for the parents to share!
Group 2 - Apple and mincemeat puff pastry parcels
Our room smelt like Christmas today when we made these.. We practiced peeling and chopping the apples and rolling out pastry. We also learnt how to seal the pastry so that our filling didn't seep out.
I was so proud of the cooking group today as they worked so hard on their snowman biscuits and they turned out fabulously! Mrs Rickersey said they could have entered the Bake off with the results!
We learnt icing skills and also how to rub butter in to make crumbs. The biscuits tasted delicious too!
