Newmains Main College college students study wholesome consuming with just a little assist from Jamie Oliver
A number of elementary school students in Renfrew recently used Jamie Oliver’s cooking expertise to learn how to create simple, nutritious, and delicious recipes.
Newmains Primary School families took the Tesco Community Cookery School’s online course, developed by Jamie Oliver-trained community chefs and Tesco developmental chefs and nutritionists, to better understand the importance of healthy, nutritious eating.
It includes knife knowledge and basic nutrition, plus flexible recipes that can be customized to complement a variety of typically donated foods.
The free course provided Newmains Primary School with funding to purchase food and cooking utensils, as well as an in-depth look at a number of recipes they can share to those in need.
Sheryll Pickering, Principal Teacher at Newmains Primary School, said, “At Newmains Primary School, we have always believed in the importance of cooking and enjoying healthy, nutritious meals, especially for learning children. For this reason, we took a group of our elementary school students and their families on the Tesco Community Cookery School course.
“I am very happy to have been a part of it, and all the teachers and children involved had a really good time. Some of the food looked amazing and we hope to inspire the next generation of Michelin star talent here at Renfrew. “
The culinary school initiative was launched in 2019 with the aim of training 1,000 community chefs – a goal that was achieved by January 2020. The program was developed in collaboration with Tesco’s health ambassador Jamie Oliver and the food distribution organization FareShare.
They aim to provide recipes and skills to get the most out of the food that is usually donated to charity, such as: B. Preserves and ingredients from the cupboard. This year’s campaign focuses on the importance of cooking balanced meals from scratch by offering ideas and recipes to increase the use of fruits and vegetables in everyday meals.
