Last night our 10 little chefs showed off their cooking skills by making some delicious cheese and chive puffs!
We started by mixing ingredients together in a big bowl … which always get messy … and is their favourite bit for exactly that reason! Then we grated the cheese in special winding graters and chopped up some chives after spending quite some time convincing the kids that it wasn’t grass ha ha.
When all the ingredients were added we made put little bite sized portions on baking trays and put them in the oven, excited to see what they would taste like! While the puffs were puffing we had some other activities for our little chefs … the first was onion tasting. We learned about some different types of onions … and tasted them too … creating some of the most interesting facial expressions ever! Then we played a game to illustrate how germs can be passed and to promote food hygiene which involved shaking hands along a line and seeing how much glitter passes from the first person to the last person in the line! I think it is safe to say our little chefs will be keen to wash their hands before meals from now on!
We ended on a quick quiz about food helping our kids to learn more about where their food comes from, different types of healthy food and how it can be grown before getting to taste our yummy food! It is great to see kids getting excited (despite not getting to make chocolate cake), what a difference when they are involved in the process of making something from scratch! Well done to them all!
