..so say Nether Stowe students who on Tuesday 10th March were treated to a cookery demonstration led by Executive Chef, David Riley.
David works for Entrust Facilities Management who provide school catering to nearly 300 schools in Staffordshire, cooking up to 45,000 meals daily. He is in charge of making sure school meals are healthy, appetizing and affordable so cooking up a new spicy recipe for Nether Stowe students was right up his street.
David joined a group of year 7s during their Food Technology lesson where first of all he demonstrated how to prepare the vegetables and various spices for the dish before they learned the sequence of how to cook the ingredients to get the very best flavour. He said working with the year 7s was fantastic- “they were all interested to hear about where the ingredients come from and how to cook them. They followed the recipes to the letter and are a great bunch of kids”.
Under David’s guidance the students then went into the school hall over lunchtime to demonstrate to lots of eager onlookers what they had learned and cooked up a real spicy storm of onion seeds, garam masala, fresh coriander, chilli, garlic, ginger, celery, onion, peppers, chicken, tomatoes and a touch of natural yoghurt. Combined with a tasty serving of pilau rice, there were plenty of willing tasters and an overwhelming thumbs up for the budding young chefs. A number of students were unfamiliar with spicy foods and surprised by how much they liked the dish. Judging by those after seconds (or even thirds!) the new recipe will be a real hit when it comes on sale in the school kitchen next week.
