In April Liskeard School & Community College hosted a special ‘On Your Marks, Get Set, Cook!’ event in the Old Hall.

The event was organised and presented by the Compass Group and the school’s superb catering company Chartwells, who produce wonderful breakfasts and school meals for the staff and students at Liskeard School.

Working interactively with the compere Tim Elks, two teams of students and a member of staff from Liskeard had to compete against the clock, and in front of an audience of fellow students, to create a healthy dish from a selection of mystery ingredients.

Headteacher Mrs Bryant was a delighted winner of the first round with the help of her students. After 15 minutes of cooking the audience were offered the chance to sample the food before voting using their green or red cards. All the dishes produced were superb and included Quorn In a Sweet and Sour Sauce with Peppers and also Soya and Ginger Pork Patties. Both recipes can be found on the Liskeard School website.Liskeard-School-Ready-Set-Cook-1

There were three sessions in all with St Martins Primary School joining in the fun for the final afternoon session.

The event was both entertaining and highly educational regarding the importance of good nutrition and healthy eating as well as providing students with hands-on cookery experience. The event also highlighted to students the importance of teamwork and how easy it is to cook with fresh food. A lot of the students after the event commented that they were going to try the recipes at home and how they didn’t realise what fun it was to cook in a healthy way.

Huge thanks to Mel, Sasha Walters and Kelly Hammond from the Chartwells team for a fantastic event enjoyed by staff and students and for educating us all in the culinary delights.
