HOW WE TEACH COOKERY
A significant part of changing the food culture at Gayhurst School was in the marrying of the food in the dining room and the cookery teaching in the classroom and kitchen.
Our cookery curriculum consists of just seven lessons. Pupils learn to bake bread, make soup, prepare vegetables, to understand and cook eggs, to cook over fire, and finally, to make desserts – beetroot ice cream, in this case.
This enables pupils to leave their primary school equipped to make simple, savoury meals on a very small budget, for themselves, their family and friends.
