GTT COOKING COMPETITION
We had another student doing fantastic cooking again during the weekend. Nico made an awesome feijoa crumble based on last weeks recipe and from the pictures it looked like he was a confident cook who produced a wonderful dessert for his family. Tino Pai Nico.
The Garden Group
The sun was shining again this week and the gardens and the gardening team were very busy. We even had visitors from R4 who had been growing beans in the classroom. The seedlings have got so big that they need to be planted outside. It was great fun hearing the R2 gardeners sharing their knowledge as they explained how to a dig hole in the soil and plant the beans. Good job gardeners. The beans have been planted in the garden out the front of the school so please have a look next time you are in the playground.
Yesterday I planted my seed. It was good because I got to put it in the hole. We had to stay on the cardboard so we didn’t step on the plant and didn’t get mud all over our shoes. I liked planting my bean because it was ready to grow. Each day we watered them in R4 but now they are in front of the library and everyone can see them. I hope it will grow into a beanstalk and so tall that I could climb it. I love planting seeds in the garden and would like to do it again. By Jonty
The Kitchen Group
Today at Garden to Table we have made ANZAC biscuits with a difference. They are called SEE in the dark ANZAC biscuits. They have grated carrot. During WWII there were too many carrots in the UK so carrots were added to lots of cooking. Rosemary and Poppy seeds are symbols of remembrance and are also in our biscuits. In the kitchen Poppy and Ava were melting golden syrup, sugar and butter to make the sticky gooey syrup to add to the dry ingredient mix for the ANZAC cookies. Donny helped them and it smelled amazing!!! The colour of the melted ingredients looked like the sunset! Two other groups were mixing the dry ingredients that were flour, oats, cinnamon. Another group with Estelle was making biscuits that had a twist in it. Instead of using butter for the vegan cookies we used oil! We had apples for a side dish! It was a fantastic meal. By Ava & Bobby
