On Thursday 5 October, we welcomed Jill and Jake from Birtwistles, our meat suppliers, to carry out a chicken portioning demonstration with Year 11 GCSE Food students.
Jake was the primary demonstrator, and showed the girls how to successfully portion a chicken whilst also discussing food miles. This is a high skill students can demonstrate in their cooking exam.
Pupils then had a go themselves and ended with roasting some of their chicken in herbs and spices. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn from a specialist, and we are very thankful to Jill and Jake.
