Master Chef

Our family cooking group in Bramley St Peters school enjoyed a special day this week as professional chef and Education student Harry made a guest appearance. Harry has volunteered with Flourishing Families before as an activities-based mentor and is always a popular addition to any club or session we have run. The boys in the group love having him around and he is a fantastic role model in many ways.

The session started with some valuable lessons in how to cut vegetables like a professional chef, and finished with a practical demonstration on how to mix and cook scotch pancakes- a highly prized life skill! And with the long summer holidays almost upon us, there will hopefully be some opportunities to put these new skills into practice.
