On-Our-Doorstep – Cook Club

The Home Economics department has been running an after school cook club for a few months now. It was open to any S2/3 pupils to participate. Almost 30 registered with between 20 – 26 turning up each week.

The aim was to source local produce from within East Lothian. We were delighted with the support we received from local businesses in the area. Each recipe was designed to include one or more food items from the area.

Pupils became aware of what could be sourced so close to home and benfited from 1st class fresh produce from the suppliers. Each week it was recorded on an East Lothian map to identify the spread avaiable.

The 30th of January is the final night with 14 of the pupils competing in a practical cookery competition to produce a ‘main meal for 2 people using local produce’. 6 of our suppliers are acting as judges that evening which will show a vast array of talent and culinary delights.

Our thanks must go to all who supported the club, especially the local suppliers. Well done to all who participated.
