Albany Academy was the venue the scouts chose to work on their Cooking Activity Badge and what a challenge they had. Their mission: to produce three main meals, three desserts and freshly-baked bread within 90-minutes, for Albany Master Chef Judge, Mrs Parry, to decide the winner!
On the menu was Red Thai Chicken Curry, Spaghetti Bolognese (using the Marzolini family's "secret recipe"), a vegan-friendly Sweet Chilli Stir Fry and a variety of baked breads (including garlic bread). For dessert, there were Blueberry Muffins, Flapjacks and Fruit Kebabs.
The Scouts couldn't believe how quickly the time went, the leaders couldn't believe how good the food was and Mrs Parry had the difficult task of judging who to appoint as ASJ Scout Master Chefs 2018... Team Veggie won on account of finishing on time, the presentation and taste of their dishes and the superb bread plaits they produced.
A big thank-you to Mrs Parry for letting us use your Food Technology kitchens and teaching us how to make such delicious recipes - we can't wait to try them on our next camp!
