Master Chefs of the future cooked up a treat at Garswood Primary School as classes went head-to-head at the Garswood Ready, Steady, Can't Cook, Won't Bake Off.

Having been presented earlier in the week with their five ingredients consisting of cream cheese, pineapple slices, carrots, fresh beetroot, tomatoes and a limited amount of larder - the children spent the week researching recipes, measuring ingredients, preparing resources before finally creating culinary delights such as sugar free beetroot brownies, pineapple cheesecake, carrot cake, and many more tasty treats.

The overall winners were Year 6 who impressed the judges - made up of St Helens Council’s catering team - particularly with their bread making skills, but headteacher, Pam Potter was full of praise for all those who took part in the event which raised over £250 for the school.

“They’re all winners for being so creative and resourceful. Who knew you could do so much with so little?”

“Everyone had so much fun taking part in the event, but most importantly developed new skills, applied practical maths, solved problems and developed their vocabulary,” she said.
