Something is cooking up in Iwade! Since September we have been running a Cooking Club for 8-12s in our Iwade Nook (based on Culnells Farm). Here the young people are learning new kitchen skills through cooking a meal together and then sitting down to eat dinner around a table.
We are loving trying all this new food and getting to know new people. One of the young people decided they liked mangos so much they were going to try and plant the seed and grow a tree! (They were a little deterred when we explained how long it would take for it to bear fruit!). We've found out new skills when cooking: like how to cut a pepper up, deseed a pomegranate into water, or the best way to cook rice to perfection! After they have eaten the young people get to write up the recipe, take pictures and rate and review the meal. Who knows instead of the next Nigella, they might aspire to take after Jonathan Gold!
Parents this is your night to get out of the kitchen! Dinner time is on us!
