Live Life On The Veg!
Posted on 16 January 2019 by Miss Emily Acton-Edmiston
On the evening of Monday 14 January, we embraced ‘Veganuary’, learning some new cooking skills from Riverford Organic’s Francesca Melman and Ann Storr.
Parents and pupils gathered to cook three vegan dishes under the expert guidance of Francesca, who has spent more than 15 years working as a chef in top London restaurants, including The River Cafe. Francesca and Ann are both passionate about food, vegetables and sustainability and so the class focused on the importance of using fresh produce as well as learning practical cooking skills.
The aromas coming from the White Dining Room got appetites going and everyone sat down to enjoy the feast that they had collectively created; beetroot curry, roasted veg with Romesco sauce and the tangy, shredded raw pad thai.
We look forward to welcoming the Riverford team back for another class in the Summer Term.
