Normandy primary school, was turned into food heaven when two competing teams battled it out to produce the most delicious and healthy meal in only 15 minutes.

Darren Tinkler, from Roots to Food, visited Normandy, Fairford Avenue, Bexleyheath, to talk to the children about healthy eating.

The children explored the healthy food wheel, cooking styles, preparation and food from different countries.

Independent Catering provided random ingredients which the two teams used, with the help of ideas from the audience.

The children prepared twice cooked parmesan chicken on a bed of spring onion pasta, served with a chunky tomato and basil sauce and tandoori spiced salmon with pilau rise and Bombay saag aloo.

Recepies were then typed up for children to take home and cook with their families.

Headteacher Claire Whittington added: “It was a fantastic event which has inspired lots of the children (and staff) to do more home cooking with fresh and healthy ingredients. The food tasted amazing.”
