The Summer of Stories menu development workshop with the school council from Green Lane School in Barnard Castle
Thank you to Heather and Rosie for this lovely blog post about today's menu development workshop, inspired by Fairy tales, myths and legends... and do come to the Café to enjoy tasting the dishes that the children dreamed up with their fantastic imaginations! Thank you too to Teesdale Area Action Partnership and the James Knott Trust for your support.
Today Green Lane School Council went to the Witham to do a project for the café. We had to think of lots of ideas for 3 different meals, which included a main course, dessert and a drink, for myths, legends & fairy tales. Firstly, we had to come up with characters or stories that were either fairy tales, myths or legends. Next, we had to get into groups of three and design and name different foods and drink that were related to the three topics. After we had to share our ideas with everybody in the room, we listened to all the great suggestions and names. Then we had to choose one of each of our groups’ ideas for the summer stories’ menu and design it.
At the end, we had some delicious shortbread which the café chefs had made that morning. Finally, we had our picture taken by the Mercury. We all had a lovely time and we would like to say thank you to the staff of the Witham for having us.
