Week 10 Term 1 2014

Our last week of cooking for this term. We made:

Jewelled Couscous
Pumpkin and Spinach Salad
Pear and Parmesan Salad
Zucchini and Onion Pizza
Pasta with Caramelised Onions

Aimee did a fantastic job making jewelled couscous, she really enjoyed using the dicer! Jason, Harvey and Christopher also did excellent work to make this dish on their days.

Lots of great pizza making this week. Litiani impressed us all when she made the pizza dough almost completely independently. Tomas and Josie were impressive with their plating up and serving. And on Thursday Frank and Bella made a great team and were joined by Christopher too!

Brandon, Jack B, Thomas B and Stephen B worked really well making the pumpkin and spinach salad.


Our pear and parmesan salad was really good this week, well done especially to Ryan and Jamie for their contribution to this on Thursday.

Our pasta makers were excellent – well done Jed, Aidan and Vinnie! And what a great job Zach did with this dish too – it was lovely to have his mum and grandmother join us for our kitchen session. And thank you to Tom D who came and assisted with the pasta sauce after he had completed his work on couscous.

Jamie did a great job setting the table this week – well done!

Great work by Blue Class in the garden this week – Jacob and Aidan composting and planting.

I would like to finish with a quote from Stephanie Alexander’s autobiography “A Cook’s Life” when she talks about why she started the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.

“I was certain that if you offer a child the widest possible range of food from the earliest possible age in a loving environment, if you eat together as often as possible, and demonstrate your own enjoyment of flavour and texture and conviviality, that child will eat well forever, and will enjoy being with others around a table for the rest of his or her life.”

How fortunate we are that Stephanie had this belief and put it into practice with her program.
