School’s pizza oven sparks hot de­bate

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

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.”
