The Kormilda Primary School Year 3, 4 and 5 students have been participating in the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program throughout the year.
They have been working in the garden to produce vegetables and herbs for use in their cooking classes. The main theme of the classes this year was Around the World so the students have been learning all about different types of food and dishes and producing them in the Food Tech room. The students have been receiving licences for their efforts and skills, and the 12 students with the most licences were invited to participate in the Masterchef Challenge on Wednesday 18 November.
The students had to decide which recipe to follow and then cook and present their creations to three judges. The judging panel included the Principal, Dr Helen Spiers, the Head of Health and PE, Mr Matthew French and the Horticulture and garden teacher, Mr Ross Marriner. After careful consideration and marking the food on taste, presentation, cleanliness of work station and planning, the following winners were announced: 1st Amielia Crawley & Walter Gee, 2nd Alison O’Brien & Siena Blackburn and 3rd Tobias Balcombe Ehrlich and Tynesha Cadd.
The entire event was filmed and live streamed to many family members and friends both locally and around the world.
