Budding young chefs at a South Elmsall school hit the kitchens to take part in a national cooking challenge.
Youngsters from Ash Grove Junior and Infant School were among 36,000 people across the country who tackled the Let’s Get Cooking Big Cookathon.
On March 7 participants from 300 schools and community groups in England cooked a healthy alternative to the popular Indian takeaway dish korma.
Helen Laws, learning mentor at Ash Grove said: “For us, it’s all about children sharing and enjoying the experience of cooking. We were delighted to give all our pupils the chance to have a go.
“It’s really important for them to learn how to cook from scratch and to realise that good food doesn’t come from a freezer or a tin.”
She added: “The vegetables were donated by Moortop Farm Shop in Hemsworth, Tesco donated £40 and the Parents and Friends Association gave us £60 to pay for the cookathon.”
Rob Rees, chef and chairman of the Children’s Food Trust, which organises the cookathaon, said: “Cooking and eating together are such powerful ways to bring communities together.”
