At the beginning of lockdown, we experienced certain ingredients being hard to come by. Many people changed their habits and used local businesses to source their food and the traditional milkman was suddenly back in demand.

Not wishing to add to the stress of these strange times, we made practical cooking tasks optional. Remarkably our students shared many photographs of their practical accomplishments with their food teachers.

To reward the students who showed great engagement with ‘cooking at home’ during lockdown, we commissioned special wooden spoons (pictured right) to mark their achievement.
