GCSE food students learn how to cook seafood thanks to Fish Heroes
Last week, our GCSE Food students created some shellfish delights in the kitchen as they embarked on a sensational seafood journey, courtesy of the incredible generosity of the Offshore Shellfish Company.
From ocean to plate, Mrs Wright and our talented students prepared, cooked, and tasted (some for the first time) the freshest mussels that were only harvested three days prior. They learned how they were grown and harvested until they were delivered to our school.
Bishops Hatfield was one of 250 schools in England to receive some 2000kg of mussels donated by the Offshore Shellfish Company, packed by River Teign Shellfish & delivered by DFDS UK – what a partnership! Thank you to all of them and #FishHeroes – the Food Teacher Centre, the Fishmongers Company for making this possible!
All our students had the opportunity to delve into the flavours of France with Moules Marinière or transport their taste buds to Italy with Italian Tomato mussels and the vibrancy of Thailand with Thai green curry mussels. Credit to our students for their passion, creativity, and dedication to mastering the art of cooking! The food room was buzzing with teamwork resulting in a memorable experience for them all.
