Friday afternoon in Old Buckenham

Primary School gets wrapping
Friday 16 May was Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day so two hundred children at Old Buckenham Primary School joined in a world-wide cooking session that started at 2pm. A life video feed with Jamie demonstrating how to make a 'rainbow salad wrap' was followed by the children in small groups of six all doing their own little bit towards the finished products.

There was lots of grating to do with teachers and parents on hand to help if necessary. Carrots, beetroot, pear, cabbage ended up in a big mixture along with some herbs. A dressing was made with olive oil, vinegar, mustard and yogurt being shaken up together in a sealed jar before being drizzled over the salad.
Everything was then mixed up again and spooned onto individual wraps, one for everyone, folded up and carefully packed so that they could be taken home. Then it was all over, the children went out to play and all the helpers worked to get the school hall back to normal.
