Hello hello! Welcome to Spring, and the final push before the end of the academic year. Has it flown for you too?
We have another cooking class next Friday 7th April. Foster Canteen, 2:30pm. This one is gonna be a little different…
We have been asked to put together a lesson plan/workshop to take into schools in May-July on the theme of cooking, sustainability and food waste. (I know, exciting!!!) The opportunity came out of the blue, and it was too good to turn down! Even if we were panicking inside as we shook on it.
This is something completely new to all of us, and we need all the help we can get! If you are a student looking to go into public health, or see yourself teaching in the future, then this is a brilliant chance to get some unique experience under your belt and onto your CV!
We’re going to be trialling a ‘wonky veg’ soup (using fresh veg, of course), and also making some easy bread rolls too, to see if this is a viable option for us to take on the road. We’ll also be talking about fun ways of engaging the students around different ideas using quizzes or games.
If you would like to get involved, please email Brigit on BRamsingh@uclan.ac.uk to book your place for next Friday.
Of course, if you’re not big on the hands on teaching aspect, but would like to learn how to make a hearty, tasty and cheap soup, or bake some bread rolls, then that is fine too!
