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
Very good! What we see and how we judge when watching others from afar depends on the clarity of the window through which we look.
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
***Recipe of the Day**
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.
