Waitrose Cooking Session

On Tuesday 3rd April 2012 a cookery session has been arranged at Waitrose Southend for ages up to 16. If you think your child would like to have a go, contact Paula Blakey on 01277 211625

“I went to Waitrose in Southend to do cooking last time. First thing we did was to put in the flour and the eggs then the butter and we mixed it up with a wooden spoon, and then that was done and then we put in the mixture in the cake tins and then put them in the oven to cook and we put it in our box that had our name on it. The session went on for an hour. While the cakes were cooking we had some fruit which was delicious and some tasted a bit watery but I liked it. The fruit we tasted it was Mangos and dragon fruit, and Melon and I loved all the fruit including the mangos. The cakes were scrummy and soft inside and also they melted into your mouth and it was so nice. The session was great and I loved it including my mum she loved it she had a cake and she tasted it and she loved it as well.”
