On Friday year 3 were lucky enough to spend their afternoon
with Chef Nick Fairley. Our class was split into two groups and
we looked at cooking a healthy and well balanced meal. This
week Chef was showing us how to make Chilli Con Carne.
MAnd so we washed our hands and donned our chef hats and
were ready to start cooking. Earlier in the week we had
already learnt about the different food groups such as dairy,
carbohydrates and fats thus we had a little head start when
it came to answering some of Chefs questions.
Chef explained what we were making and we finally got a
chance to show off our chopping skills! Some off us chopped
onion, some pepper and some celery among other vegetables.
The smells coming from the hall were amazing. When our
Chilli was almost ready Chef pulled out his ‘secret’ ingredient.
Dark Chocolate! We couldn’t believe that we were adding
chocolate to our Chilli!
We all had to try our Chilli but not with a spoon, with nacho
chips! We used them to scoop up the Chilli however we had
to make sure we didn’t double dip. It was delicious and Chef
Nick was impressed. We had such a fun afternoon and we
were lucky enough to be the first class to spend the afternoon
cooking with Chef.
We all want to say Thank you to Nick for helping us learn a
new recipe fitting for a healthy balanced diet.
