Mrs Nicoll’s S4 Hospitality class have been busy creating wonderful ideas for a delicious breakfast as part of the special challenge within ‘Active Kids get cooking’ opportunities.
Initially pupils investigated ideas on the internet, looking at different breakfasts in various countries. They then tried some of the ideas within class time. Pupils were then put into pairs/groups to work on developing the ones they decided they liked most. Ideas included baked doughnuts, fruity crepes, a variety of fruity drinks.smoothies/mooless,variations of french toast and welsh rarebit.
Staff were then invited to sample the dishes and decide on the entries we would send off as part of the national competition. 3 dishes were chosen from a very high standard.
The winning dishes were :-
Toffee Apple & Raspberry porridge with honey & greek yogurt drizzle, plus a refreshing fruit smoothie – created by Blair Forlow – S4
Hawaiian tropical crepes with mango coulis, coconut cream and crshed pineapple- with Morning Caribbean mooless- created by Hannah Burns – S4
Egg stuffed baked tomatoes with welsh rarebit topping, asparagus and tomato accompaniments followed by Berry stuffed frech brioche with poached peaches and a Merry berry smoothie on the side. – created by Lee Sneddon
A great effort by all pupils involved. They seemed to enjoy the challenge and using their own recipes to achieve such good results.
