North Ayrshire Council’s school chefs are inviting locals to “come along and prepare a school lunch using local produce, while learning how to create traditional school meals and home baking”.
Three demonstrations on how to prepare nutritional school-meals favourites will be held at Irvine Royal Academy over the next week, with Aileen Campbell and former School Chef of the Year Suzanne Fuller showing how it’s done.
Earlier this year all of North Ayrshire's primary schools, together with Arran High School, were awarded the Soil Association's prestigious Food for Life Catering Gold-Mark for their new menus, which involves preparing at least 75% of food freshly on site, using local, ethically-sourced and organic ingredients. North Ayrshire is one of two local authorities in Scotland that have achieved the Gold award for their school meals.
Demonstrations will be held at Irvine Royal Academy, Kilwinning Road, between 5:00pm and 7:00pm on Sunday 22nd, Monday 23rd and Tuesday 24th of September.
Anyone wishing to book a place should contact Aileen Campbell (firstname.lastname@example.org).
