Cookery Club at St Mary's!

by Frances Collins


Over a 4 week period, some children in Primary 6 were given the opportunity to learn some easy, cheap and healthy recipes, which they cooked in school and then brought home. The children took a laminated copy of all the recipes home too. This culminated in a celebration for parents, siblings and friends where the children prepared, cooked and served the dishes they had practised in the club.  The response was amazing both from the children and the guests. 


Here are some of the children's comments.


'I loved the club because I can now cook for my mum and sister. This helps Mum and I can show my little sister how to do some recipes.'


'I loved the club because I got to cook things I never tried before'


'The cooking club was fun and I tried food I had never tasted before.'


'The baked potatoes were the best!'




The guests were just as full of praise.


'I never knew my child could do so much!'


'I feel more confident letting my child cook now.'


'I have learned some new recipes and techniques from my child'
