Spanish food at St Austin's

Picture 1

Workshop 1 - Thursday 24th January

A fantastic Spanish food feast was enjoyed in school on Thursday. Carolina and Carmen from La Vina arrived to lead workshops about typical Spanish tapas. The children learnt all about the traditions and typical dishes included in tapas. They, then, had the opportunity to sample a variety of delicious dishes such as tortilla, patatas bravas, albondigas, potato croquettes, a variety of delicious dips and garlic mayonnaise with bread.......que delicioso!

Year 4 learnt how to make the perfect 'Gazpacho' with Pachy, our language assistant. They tasted this very typical cold soup and some even said they would like to try to make it at home for their family! 

Our first 'Learn to Cook the Spanish Way', was held after school for children in Years 4, 5 and 6. A super team of Spanish cooks; teachers and friends of our school, prepared two traditional recipes; 'Cocido', a typical dish from Madrid which includes a wide variety of Spanish meats and vegetables and its Lent time equivalent which in the place of meat, contains cod and spinach. 

Together, the children involved peeled, cut, chopped and stirred in order to learn how to make these Spanish dishes. The dishes which Jesus and Jose Maria had spent the afternoon preparing, could then be sampled by children and parents. The response was very positive....DELICIOSOS!

Workshop 2 - Monday 28th January

Gazpacho was on the menu when some children from Years 1,2 and 3 took part in our second  'Learn to Cook the Spanish Way'. Together with their parents and grandparents, the children learnt about the history of this typical Spanish dish from the region of Andalusia. All the children were involved in the cutting and preparing of vegetables, then helped to blend and sieve the mixture to create this delicious, nutritious soup. A big thank you to all involved, particularly Mrs Alison Lockett Burke who delivered the workshop.
