Rhubarb planting, Quinoa re-visited, Tasting ..............

This week we made:

Zucchini Fritters

Salad of the Imagination

Moroccan Chickpea and Quinoa Salad

Pizza of the Imagination

Pasta with Vegetable Sauce
Although of course this is just a little confusing as our menus changeover on Tuesdays so there are some photos included of students working on last week’s menus!!
We had some very imaginative 'Salads of the Imagination' this week! The one with the roasted pumpkin was particularly good – it was great to see so much thought and preparation put into it – well done Daniel, Jason, Rosie and Shaani! In fact we were inspired to put a pumpkin salad on the menu next week.

The warm weather continued and so there was lots of watering to be done.

Once again we were given produce from Ryan – great zucchinis plus rhubarb and a rhubarb plant. We cooked the zucchinis and rhubarb and Ryan planted the rhubarb plant.

The various machines that we use in the kitchen continue to be very popular.

In the garden we harvested zucchinis, peas, snowpeas, coriander, silver beet, tomatoes, mint, basil, lettuce, rocket, mizuna and spinach.

Our pumpkins are still growing!!


It was good to see Jacob tasting his pasta sauce during cooking and also encouraging anyone who passed by to have a taste too!


Next week we are making:


Pear and Parmesan Salad

Pasta with Caramelised Onion Sauce

Pumpkin and Spinach Salad

Zucchini and Onion Pizza

Jewelled Quinoa


Inspiration provided by:
