        On Friday 24th May, the children of years 4, 5 and 6 couldn’t believe their luck as they embarked on a culinary adventure with Darren Tinkler and Roots To Food. They began by learning about the different culinary skills they would be using, such as; chopping, mixing, stirring, frying, slicing and marinating. They were then quickly organised into groups and each ‘chef’ was assigned a task. Within minutes, there were ‘chefs’ using their claw and bridge techniques to prepare the ingredients, and soon they were ready to start cooking. At this point, Chef Darren took great care to ensure all the children understood the temperatures they were working with and that they knew how to stay safe. Before you could say ‘wok’, the ingredients were tossed in and the carefully timed and staggered cooking process began. Once all the ingredients were evenly cooked, it was time to taste, and my goodness, did they taste! The woks full of food were devoured in no time! And nearly every single child vowed to take the recipe home to recreate this fantastic meal over the half term holiday. Get ready parents, you’re in for a delicious treat!
