Futurechef 2015 Competition

LATEST:  Good Luck to Cara Cusick of S3 who will take part in the Local Final of the Futurechef 2015 competition on Thursday 8th January at City of Glasgow College.  Photographs to follow!

The Future Chef 2015 school heats were recently held in the Home Economics Department. Pupils had to develop an idea for a hot main course for two people within a £5 budget, all to be be made and served within an hour.

Our budding chefs came up with the recipes on their own, and had to calculate the cost of each ingredient to make sure they were within budget.  

Morton's Rolls

Our Higher Health and Food Technology pupils recently attended a visit to Morton’s Rolls factory.  This was part of the work they are doing in class, learning about food product development.

The group was shown around the production lines, then given the opportunity to decorate their own Empire Biscuits.  The wonderful staff at Morton’s took time to answer questions from pupils and at the end of the visit we were all given a goody bag filled with rolls, cakes and potato scones. As well as all of this, we were then given a box full of brand new books for our school library.

It was an incredibly fun and worthwhile visit, which I am sure will help pupils with their product development work in class. Thanks Morton’s Rolls!

The Taste of Tapas!

St Eunan’s Primary 7’s enjoyed making Tapas with our S4 Childcare And Early Education pupils on Monday. The primary school are doing a Spanish themed unit at the moment and came to us to make some authentic Spanish Tapas dishes such as Tomato & Garlic bread, Smoky Chicken Skewers and Garlic dip and Spanish Spiced Potatoes. 

The pupils then all tucked into the food they had made and thoroughly enjoyed it. The classroom smelled of Spanish holidays when they had finished!
