St Peter's Summer Roast

Chef Challenge is a series of Teachers TV programmes in which professional chefs inspire students to cook creative dishes using local produce. In this challenge, Chef Michael Coaker works with a Year Eight class at St Peter’s Middle School to create a dish using fruit and vegetables produced locally and in the school gardens.

Hazel Emery, a Higher Level Teaching Assistant at the school, believes the students should be taught the value of growing their own vegetables and to appreciate where food comes from. She helps the students grow vegetables in the allotment and takes the students to shop at the local farm shop where the food being sold is labelled with where it was produced.

The students cook a roast chicken, flavoured with chopped garlic, rosemary and sweetened with organic honey, with roasted vegetables. But the most popular recipe is Eton Mess, made with locally grown fruits. The students invite the rest of their class to share the meal they have cooked to celebrate their success.
