TY & Secondary School Tour Limerick

A flavour of Our Secondary School Tour Munster or TY School Tour Limerick

As the bus pulls up outside the cookery school in Annacotty, Limerick the Recipe4Success team were all ready to go.  We always give a big welcome to each group as they arrive.  The eager but nervous children put on aprons, wash their hands and then sit down to see a demonstration of the first dish of the day.  We start with the old reliable which is chocolate and blueberry muffins before we break the children into groups of 3 to re-create these tasty treats at their own tables.  In a bowl, the children mix the wet ingredients, then place all the dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  They combine the mixture and then place in baking trays ready for the oven which will take 15 minutes.  Once the oven does the hard work, the children get to sit and enjoy their creations.  

We then get the students back up again for their next demonstration to see how to make as described themselves "a surprisingly tasty and moist banana bread".  This is a great recipe for students to learn, especially as they get to understand about bananas helping if they play sports & more importantly when they will not eat bananas when they go black at home.  Now that the children understand the setup & flow of activities, they proceed to their hands-on tables to make this delicious loaf that they will be ready for home as their take home treat.  Sometimes we even convince the children to take some to the teachers room to share.

Finally, the students observe the making of an authentic chicken curry. They in turn make the dish at their tables along with perfect rice and a green salad.  This is now their lunch which they get to sit and enjoy together.  And so ends our half day school trip.  The children go home with colour laminated recipe cards, fresh moist banana bread, life skills and a smile on their face.  What's not to like about that school trip.

After lunch we get down to more take home treats with Butter icinng and Sugarcraft techniques.
