Newslink - - NEWS - By JENNY CAMP­BELL

The op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate some tasty treats to eat led to eight stu­dents from across North­ern South­land gath­er­ing to learn some of the finer culi­nary skills last Fri­day.

Cook­ing for Kids, for those aged 10 to 13 years old, was taught by South­ern REAP tu­tor An­gela Richard­son at North­ern South­land Col­lege.

It meant a fun day of learn­ing var­i­ous cook­ing and bak­ing meth­ods in­volv­ing good hy­giene prac­tices and prac­tis­ing safety in the kitchen. The day ended with lots of recipe op­tions to take home to try as well as sam­ples of dishes cre­ated in­clud­ing flour tor­tillas, sushi, spaghetti car­bonara and sweet ap­ple que­sadil­las.

The day fol­lowed on from sim­i­lar cour­ses in Win­ton and Otau­tau.

‘‘Stu­dents en­joyed mak­ing and eat­ing the va­ri­ety of dishes which no doubt will be made at home for the whole fam­ily to try af­ter their day of learn­ing,’’ Richard­son said.
