For our last cookery session before half term, the children made Spaghetti Carbonara, at Anna M’s request.  Over half term, I hope that they will try making their families some of the dishes they have learnt over the past few weeks.

This term has been a first experience of Golden Syrup for our overseas children and now they are absolutely hooked! Rather than just pouring it all over their waffles at breakfast, I thought it would be a good idea to show them how to use it in baking, so they made Flapjacks. Many are hoping to take some home for their families at half term.

This week was savoury week, so I decided on stir- fried pork with vegetables and noodles. Summer L and Patrick L were especially delighted as it gave them a feeling of home from home. The other children were given lessons on how to eat with chopsticks!

Each week I alternate between sweet and savoury cooking, so this week the children made Blueberry muffins. Finally, their washing-up skills are improving!

This week was the first time any of the overseas children had been to cookery club so there was much excitement. They made some deliciously gooey chocolate chip cookies.

We welcomed Gustave back to cookery this week, after more than a year’s absence.  The children requested to make smoothies and milkshakes which went down well on a hot summer’s day.  They also made chewy chocolate chip cookies.

叉燒

For many months now, David D has been asking for sticky rice. So, to go with it they made Char Siu pork which had been marinated in many ingredients including soya sauce, hoisin sauce and Chinese five spice. They enjoyed the meal take-away style for supper.

Chocolate

This week I nearly had a full house of Year 8 girls. It often becomes quite difficult to know what to make as everybody seems to like different things, but after discussing this with the girls the common theme seemed to be chocolate. Therefore, we ended up making chocolate mousse with strawberries dipped in chocolate for the whole of the boarding house and staff.

Chicken Enchiladas

At last, some delighted girls made it to cookery as they had home matches. The enchiladas were mouth-wateringly good and nearly didn’t make it down to supper! Some children made toppings from avocado, spring onions and soured cream.

Swiss rolls
As you can probably see from the photos, the quality of the Swiss rolls was incredible! All were light, fluffy and evenly baked. They varied from chocolate and cream to plain sponge with jam and cream. The cooks very kindly shared them with the other boarders for pudding at suppertime.
