Sally (School of Artisan Food Tutor) and Lauren (Best Food Forward Project Director) spent a day at Samworth Church Academy for a fun-filled and informative day of practical food learning as part of the school’s Project Flavour.
One hundred and fifty students made Spanish omelettes during hands-on cooking sessions. The students learned about and built their confidence with knife skills, blanching, frying, teamwork, nutrition for health, and exploring new foods. The sessions took place during the school's Languages Week, so we chose Spanish omelettes to set up a theme of cultural diversity and world cooking.
The session was a huge success, with teachers commenting on how the students were really engaged in the practical work.
