SOUTH Bromsgrove High hosted a family food appreciation workshop which saw three professional chefs come into school to cook with children and their parents.

The two-hour session, the first of four to be held throughout the year, was organised in conjunction with LACA – the main body for the school food industry.

The scheme is aimed at making cooking fun and teaching the participants how to prepare time-saving, cost-effective and nutritionally-balanced meals, whilst building a family bond through the knowledge of food.

Food technology teacher Mrs Davies said: "The atmosphere in our food room was buzzing.

"The three chefs gave spot demonstrations and also shared their expertise with parents and children, enabling them to produce fabulous two-course meals."

The chefs, from the Craft Guild of Chefs, sampled the children's creations and gave out signed copies of celebrity chefs’ cook books as prizes.

"The display of seasonal fruit and vegetables was stunning - we did not realise there was such a thing as golden beetroot," added Mrs Davies.
