This week we were lucky enough to visit the cafe with Mrs Walker and make bread; just like Thomas Farriner would have done in his bakery on Pudding Lane before the fire started.
We washed our hands and made sure that everything was clean, measured the ingredients and got mixing! The most exciting part was obviously, the kneading.
This Wednesday, we visited Mrs Walker in the cafe and tasted different foods from the four countries of the UK. Some children who have shown fantastic ‘going for gold’ behaviour since the start of year 1 we given the opportunity to help Mrs Walker prepare the welsh rarebit (cheese on toast! yum).
– Soda bread from Northern Ireland
– Oat cakes from Scotland
– Welsh rarebit (cheese on toast) from Wales
– Cream teas (scones with cream and jam) from England
We then voted for our favourite; it was a tie between rarebit and cream teas!
