As I was putting the veg order away this morning, and prepping veg for today and the start of next week, it occurred to me that I should take a few photos to share with you the fruit and vegetables that we use and are getting into the kids here at the school on a weekly basis. Every dish that we do at the school is packed with veg along with the salad and fruit offerings on the table. Please rest assured that your children are getting their 5 a day and even more.
Compost As you may be aware the school is getting into composting in a big way - I just wanted to share the kitchen's contribution to this. With food scraps like these we should have the barrels full in no time at all.
Monday - Roasted sweet potatoes with sour cream and Guacamole Tuesday - Vegetarian hotdogs Wednesday - Vegetable parcels Thursday - Cream of tomato and basil soup Friday - Gnocchi in pesto sauce
Monday- PUPIL FREE DAY Tuesday- Broccoli and cauliflower pasta bake Wednesday- Pesto gnocchi Thursday- Asparagus and feta frittata Friday- Sweet corn and chive pancakes
A word from the kitchen... Hello children, parents and staff of John Colet I hope you are all enjoying the food and are also enjoying the new food that we are trying at the school. I know it’s often hard to try new things and it means a lot that the children are trying the new dishes. Quite often you can end up enjoying something when you take a chance on it.
I would like to thank the Tuesday morning choir children who use the hall. It makes getting up early and coming to work much easier - always nice to have some music while you work!
It would be a great help if parents of the children can make sure to read the menu week to week and assist in the packing of their children’s plates for school we are using too many of the spare plates, cups and bowls on a daily basis. The ladies who work in the kitchen work very hard and they are too often getting backed up with cleaning these extra items and slowing down the duties which they are here to do. I appreciate your understanding on this matter.
Monday- Vegetable and five bean chili served with basmati rice Tuesday- Roasted pumpkin and kumara quiche Wednesday- Traditional Greek Spanakopita spinach and feta pie Thursday- Eggplant lasagne Friday- Mushroom and basil pizzas
Hi there! I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to John Colet School. I look forward to providing the pupils with nice food which I hope they enjoy. I would also like to say a special thanks to Sabine who has been running the kitchen for the past period. She has done a fantastic job and has made my transitional period at the school a stress free one. Please make sure to say thanks to Sabine if you see her in passing. I would like to tell everyone about the menu for next week and what we are planning, we have everything from a mild yellow Thai curry to roast vegetable frittata so hope that everyone will enjoy the food.
