Ready, steady, cook! Cooking club at Merton Abbey

Cooking club has arrived at Merton Abbey

The club is a weekly lunchtime activity for children to learn how to cook a simple and healthy snack/lunch using fresh ingredients.  Miss Angus is leading the club and teaching the children basic cooking and food preparation techniques, developing their confidence in the kitchen - as well as introducing them to new foods they have not tasted or cook with before.


The first two weeks of the club were for children in Year 6. They made stuffed peppers with couscous, feta cheese and olives. All the children who attended got a chance to prepare their peppers, make the couscous, chop onions and garlic and, most importantly, stuff their peppers. The children took their peppers home to share with their families and a received a recipe sheet so they can make the peppers again at home.


Children from other year groups will have a chance to take part in cooking club as the term progresses.
