Future Chef

Futurechef 2020 Competition

Good luck to Abby Coote & Ruby Hodgson of S3 who will take part in the Local West Dunbartonshire Heats of the FutureChef 2020 competition.

The FutureChef 2020 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 budget a £5 budget, all to be made and served within one 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.

 

Annual MacMillan Coffee Morning

Our annual MacMillan coffee morning was a huge success this year as always. Thank you everyone who attended and donated to the coffee morning. We managed to raise an incredible amount for a very worthwhile cause.

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!
