Children in the after school cooking club at Bicker Preparatory School learned how to make vegetable samosas with tuition from a professional.

Victoria Howe, founder of the award-winning Farm Kitchen school meals provider, visited the group to demonstrate how healthy, fresh ingredients can be used in their cooking.

Teacher Joanne Hubbert, who runs the weekly club, said: “It was great for the children to gain an insight from a professional from the catering trade to see how healthy food can be quick to prepare and tasty as well as being good for you.

“Cooking club is just one of the ways in which the school continues to communicate the importance of good, healthy food to young people.

“Hopefully the children will use the new skills throughout their lives.”

Cooking club members have been visited by local restaurant chefs and will be visited soon by an Indian restaurant chef who recently featured on TV.
