Albany Academy pupils chip in for record bid
7:00am Thursday 29th May 2014 in News
Pupils from Albany Academy took part in Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day world record attempt.
The celebrity chef was trying to break the record for largest live cookery lesson.
Food Revolution Day saw 22 Year 8 pupils take part in a global day of action aiming to keep basic cookery skills alive.
The day is used to celebrate the importance of cooking good food from scratch and raises awareness of how food impacts upon our health and happiness.
The campaign is organised by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation in the UK and in the USA, as well as the Good Food Foundation in Australia.
The pupils who followed the chef online during their regular catering lesson had to make a healthy Rainbow Salad Wrap.
More than 117 countries and 231,000 individuals were involved in the event and the chef is waiting on confirmation as to whether he has broken the world record.
Jenny Parry who coordinated the year 8 pupil’s involvement in the challenge said: “It was nice for our pupils to be involved in an international awareness event.
“The children were a bit suspicious about cooking with a tray of vegetables, but were very open minded and sporting about the whole experience.”
