We were delighted to sponsor and take part in a series of cookery demos and interactive workshops which took place at Longlands Primary School, in Fairfields, Market Drayton last week during the Ginger and Spice Festival 2018 in the town.
AiP’s development chefs Jean Marc Bernard and Stuart Brown, assisted by directors Sally Tyson and Jenny Roberts joined celebrated Shropshire chefs including Christopher Burt and James Sherwin to create a range of delicious salads made with seasonal vegetables with children from the school. Olivier Blanc, creator of the award-winning educational food and nature app for children, ‘Henri Le Worm’ also promoted the importance of healthy, local and seasonal food choices to the children during the workshops.
Longlands Primary School children also enjoyed pedaling away on the Smoothie Bike provided by AiP for the day to make a range of delicious and healthy fruit smoothies.
Family members and friends then joined the children and school staff at a community meal the same afternoon with a barbeque and a chance to sample the salads which the children helped to prepare earlier in the day.
‘It was our pleasure to support the Ginger and Spice Festival in actively promoting seasonality and nutrition to the Fairfields’ community. The children loved working with the brigade of chefs to create some really delicious food which was enjoyed by the wider community to round off the day”, explains AiP Director Sally Tyson.
