Ready, Steady, Cook!

Roots to Food is an independent specialist company delivering healthy eating and nutrition workshops across the education sector. Drawing on over a decade of experience and skill to deliver fun, curriculum focussed activity to children.  

The children had a fantastic time learning about the nutritional benefits of the different ingredients and learning the different cooking techniques. The workshop saw the children developing their cutting techniques, learning how to cook rice, discovering the importance of ingredients being cut to a similar size for cooking and how to serve and present their dish.

A massive thank you to Tesco, Bourne, for their very kind donation of all our cooking ingredients. We would also like to say thank you to Darren for a fun filled, educational and inspiring day. The children have left school enthusiastic and with a newfound love for cooking. Molly (Year 3 pupil) said, “today has been exciting and taught me I can cook when I never knew I could!”  Bronte (Year 5 pupil) said, “I can’t wait to go home and cook this for my family. Today was inspirational and a good opportunity to learn more about the nutrition in food!”
