Forget the Great British Bake-Off... and get a taste of the Great School Bake-in.
Inspired by the popularity of the TV show, Archbishop Temple High School in Preston decided to hold its own Great Christmas Bake Off.
Food technology teacher at the St Vincent’s Road School, Ashley Smith organised the event and was overwhelmed by the response.
She said: “Pupil’s seemed to love the baking aspect of their work within food technology, so the competition rose from that.”
She added: “With the help of Danny Cronin from Fulwood Asda, we secured a variety of staff and guest judges including, the Mayor and mayoress of Preston, Major Marc Steventon from Fulwood Barracks and Asda training manager Arthur Smith.”
The pupil’s submitted a recipe before the competition and a shortlist of six where chosen for the bake-off.”
Ashley said: “It was a massive success and pupils who took part worked fantastically hard and produced some exciting outcomes.
“Carys Pearson won the competition with a caramelised onion, potato and feta tartlet.”
