PUPILS from around the Spilsby area got the chance to try out their culinary skills when a specialist travelling kitchen stopped off last week.

The Food for Life Partnership Cooking Bus arrived at the King Edward VI Humanities College in Spilsby at the end of November.

This specialist-built articulated lorry opened out into a spectacular purpose-built kitchen/classroom where qualified food teachers gave people visiting the bus a taste of quality cooking.

Students from King Edwards, pupils and staff from Spilsby, Halton Holegate, Great Steeping, Partney, and The Eresby School, all enjoyed a wonderful cooking experience.

“A wide range of menus were prepared and everyone who took part in this cooking experience took freshly prepared food with them,” said a spokesperson.

“This really was a very exciting event for King Edwards who would like to thank all staff from the Food for Life Partnership who were involved.”

Lessons on the cooking bus during its three-day visit included hands-on cooking and key aspects of food education, such as nutrition, food safety and preparation skills.
