Waitrose Masterclass


Head of Food Technology, Ms Teasdale described last week’s specialist cookery workshop for Fourth Form Food and Nutrition students: ‘The fish expert, and Personnel Manager, from Godalming Waitrose arrived with two crates of fresh mackerel for the girls to learn how to fillet and skin, before they poached the fish and made them into mackerel pâté. During the workshop, the girls also learned about how to shop for fresh fish and about the nutritional benefits of eating oily fish, sustainability and seasonality. It was a really interesting course and the girls will benefit by using their new skills to make more advanced dishes in the future.’
