Choux Stopper Visit

On Friday, December 16th 2016, GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition students were treated to a professional cookery workshop lead by pastry chef and street food entrepreneur, Simon Northcott of ‘Choux Stopper’ Students watched Simon demonstrate making the perfect Pâte à Choux and spun sugar - they then made their own chocolate and salt caramel ‘wreaths’ for Christmas, filled with a rich salt caramel cream.

The students thoroughly enjoyed this experience and we are extremely grateful to Simon for taking time out of his busy schedule to lend us his expertise!

Do you (or does someone you know), work professionally in the food, hospitality or catering industry? We are always keen to hear from parents, friends and ex-students who could help our students improve their skills or demonstrate something new and interesting in lessons or on activity days. We are especially keen to hear from anyone working as either a dietician (or other health professional) or butcher, right now.

If you believe you could help, please contact Mrs J. Johnston ℅
