School’s pizza oven sparks hot debate
News that Burnside Primary School received cash to build a pizza oven and grow their own food inspired locals to don their culinary caps and discuss their favourite foods with the Reformer.
While many debated the best topping for the Italian dough, others said Scotland’s traditional mince and tatties was the best plate of food that anyone could tuck into.
Deek Whitton was delighted to hear Burnside youngsters were growing fruit and vegetables, confessing he loves his greens.
He said: “Broccoli is my favourite food. I’d say I’m a healthy eater.”
Craig Symon, meanwhile, went for a classic steak. But he added: “It’s nice idea to grow your own veg.”
Anthony Connelly said: “I wish I went to Burnside Primary. Pizza is my favourite food, ham and pineapple. Some say it has no place on a pizza, but I like it.”
Margaret Waddell also welcomed news that youngsters are gaining culinary skills at a young age. She has been cooking a wider variety of foods since retiring.
“Tonight I have lovely prawns to cook. I’ll do that with a sweet and sour sauce,” she said.
“Since we retired we are more into pasta, rice and risotto. If we have potatoes once a week that’s it.
“I enjoy cooking and like to try new things. The only thing I don’t like is kidneys.”
