“A little bit of good food puts you in a good mood” 

We launched our TY Artisan Market in school today. Students developed a range of unique and innovative new food products as part of ‘The Future is Food’ Transition Year Unit that was developed by The Taste Council in collaboration with Bord Bia. A core element of the programme is that the school is matched with a local food producer or food professional, who will mentor the students during the initial stages of the food project. We are extremely grateful to Rathmullan House, in particular Chef Micheál Harley who paid us a visit a few weeks ago to give advice to students on their food project. Watch out for our second Artisan Market on Tues 9th of May. #HomeEconomics #ArtisanMarket #FutureisFood #TransitionYearUnit

Loreto Milford Bake Off Final

Our very different but brilliantly talented bakers arrived in the kitchen for the last time this morning, with barely anything to separate them except their workbench, ovens and a gigantic dollop of fate. Chloe Kerr (3rd year) and Cora Ferry (4th year) with their incredible imagination and baking skills were crowned the winners of the Loreto Milford Bake Off, and it was richly deserved by both. Next stop, Loreto Letterkenny for the National Final of the Loreto Bake Off #loretobakeoff #homeeconomics #Donegal

New food pyramid 

On many “levels” learning the new food pyramid proved to be a sweet success. Plenty were “tiering up” for the big reveal😉 🔼🍊🍐 #HomeEconomics #peerevaluation #creativity #newfoodpyramid #SwapthecarbsforFruitandVeg #Donegal #3Dmodel #project

A pinch of patience, a spoonful of laughter, 3 cups of enthusiasm 1/2 lb of sharing, a teaspoon of creativity and a heap of fun. Today my Transition Year students experimented with fresh basil, garlic, Parmesan, rich nuts olive oil and sun-dried tomatoes to make fresh basil and sun-dried tomato pesto.
