Over 50 children from in and around the Blockhouse Bay community took part in our first-ever “Our Kitchen Rules day”. Countdown Blockhouse Bay sponsored the entire event, including our pantry items, vouchers for each team, and prizes so that no child left empty-handed. Huge thanks to manager Jonathan Fraser and staff for their support.
The children worked in teams to create a main course and complete the cupcake challenge. Terri and Kate from the Blockhouse Bay Pharmacy and Christine from Barfoot & Thompson were our guest judges, and they were blown away with some of the dishes they were presented with. They commented on tasty satay sauces and lemon curds made from scratch, delicious pizza and pasta dishes and many other fabulous flavours and cooking techniques the children learned to do.
With the help of a professional chef the children also learned how to budget for food shopping, work within time constraints, and how to beautifully plate and present their meals.
