On Friday 8th February, pupils from Greenfields were invited to Woodlands Academy in Spilsby for a friendly cooking competition, along with pupils from Ambergate Sports College in Grantham.
Adam Hewerdine and Oliver Hibbitt travelled to the school in Spilsby, for the bake-off style contest, with the briefing of, ‘cook a main meal from scratch!’.
The pupils took their own ingredients and used the food tech facilities at Woodlands. Each school team cooked independently and the staff observed correct Health & Safety of the pupils while they were cooking.
The allotted time was to cook the main meal from scratch in two hours, which was to include the housekeeping of the food areas, and serve it to the table, set for two diners.
Six Woodlands Academy staff made up the panel of judges. After much deliberation the judges placed the Woodlands pupils in 1st place. They were unable to decide 2nd and 3rd place due to the high standard of the food served, so placed both Ambergate and Greenfields equal 2nd.
Greenfields Academy have volunteered to host the re-match, which will be puddings, and then the final round will take place at Ambergate in May so watch this space!
