What an exciting fortnight we have had in Kitchen Garden.
We submitted some of our KG produce along with hummus, soft cheese, mozzarella, ricotta and pot set yoghurt that classes made during their lesson time.
I am very excited and proud to announce that GCCC Kitchen Garden won 1st prize for our traditional hummus, a special award for our roasted beetroot hummus, third prize for our tomatoes and the GOLD MEDAL AWARD for our ricotta in the soft cheese section!
This is a fantastic achievement, especially given that these were entered into the grown up classes and not the junior classes. Congratulations to all involved and a big thank you to our wonderful volunteers who helped out in the lead up to the show.
As a special celebration treat our cooking groups made a tasty lime and marscapone tart using a recipe from our new cheese cook book which we also won.
Gardeners have been busy harvesting tomatoes, snow peas and lots of citrus. Broad beans and peas have been planted into punnets ready for next term and sunflower seeds should germinate in the next week also.I’m sure you have all noticed the adopt a garden beds around the Prep car park; they are looking fabulous thanks to the special attention the kids have been giving them.
Until next time
Mandy Ward, Kitchen Garden Convenor
