We've been doing lots of Christmas cooking over the past couple of weeks. We worked with Year 6 of Westbury Park Primary School to make over 300 mince pies for their community lunch. Last week we spent a day baking with Reception class at St Barnabas Primary School for their celebration tea. Family and friends joined the children to share the cheese breadsticks, cannellini bean and garlic dip, Christmas cake and gingerbread.
It's been a busy year for Travelling Kitchen. Overall this year we've worked with six schools cooking with over 400 children. In June we participated in the Soil Associaton's Food for Life Big Picnic at Bristol Free School and co-ordinated a huge whole school world food picnic at St Barnabas Primary School. We've travelled on a culinary journey from ancient Rome and Egypt to Tudor times and all around the world cooking up dishes from every continent.
In March we became a Community Interest Company. A couple of months later our website went live thanks to the great patience and help of Dan Tagg and Kieran Holden who designed our logo. We'd love feedback on what you think of the website and how we could improve it.
Thank you to all those teachers and children who've joined us on our journey; chopped, stirred and baked with us and constantly inspired and delighted us! Thank you too to the School for Social Entrepreneurs whose year-long programme Sarah finished in October and whose funding has enabled us to buy equipment and get started. We're looking forward to taking a break over Christmas. In the meantime we'd like to wish everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas and New Year.
