Billing Brook School

Winter Warmer Soup Challenge

We are pleased to have taken part in the Winter Warmer Soup Challenge for several years.  Each year the students thoroughly enjoy their experiences, and this  year was no different.  The theme for this year was based around the thinking behind 'Field to Fork' and the reduction of food miles by buying locally produced,      seasonal produce. Many of the ingredients used in our soup, including the onions, garlic, carrots and herbs were grown by the students in the school horticulture area. The students enjoyed making their French onion soup, were so excited to make the final four and delighted to have been awarded joint first place.  It demonstrates how cooking encompasses a huge range of skills, touches on all other areas of the curriculum and helps to build confidence and independence.
