GLENBURN Primary School children got their hands dirty in the kitchen as they buzzed around the Prestwick Bakehouse.

Part of the #LoveFoodFeelGood campaign organised by the hospitality group Buzzworks, the special visit saw fifteen children from the school get an introduction to into baking and simple cookery skills.

Aiming to instil a love of good food in the children’s early years, the leading hospitality organisation at Elliots Prestwick, look to create a lasting impression using different ingredients and learning to cook from scratch.

During the workshop, the pupils got hands on in creating a host of bakery favourites such as decorating cupcakes and crispy cakes with some fantastic results.

On top of the sweet side of things, the kids came together to create their own lunch with an impressive ‘build your own hamburger station’ that many of the kids unsurprisingly took a fond approach towards.

The fun continued when the kids were allowed to create their own ice cream sundae including countless amounts of toppings, much to the delight of the children and some of the adults.

Deputy Head teacher at Glenburn Primary, Karen Blackwood, explained that opportunities such at this can be excellent for the pupil’s development.

She said: ““The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Buzzworks Bakehouse.

“Outings like this are ideal for our children to learn about the various careers in the hospitality industry and ties in nicely with our focus on Developing Young Workforce.

“I’m sure Buzzworks has certainly changed perceptions of hospitality as a career for many of the young people.”

On top of creating their own food, the young masterchefs took part in a tour of the kitchen at Elliots and enjoyed an inspiring talk from head chef Brian Canny on what it is like to be a chef.

Holli Kerr, general manager at Elliots explained the aims and goals of the campaign.

She said: “It has been a fantastic opportunity to get the school children in today to talk about cooking, baking and hospitality as a career. Our #LoveFoodFeelGood campaign is all about instilling a healthy love of food in our young people and we hope today has been successful in doing so.

“The children threw themselves into creating some amazing cupcakes, all worthy of a place on the Great British Bakeoff, and the ‘build your own homemade burger’ session certainly went down a treat. We have definitely seen some chefs of the future here today.”

The Glenburn Primary visit is one of five that will take place throughout the school year as part of Buzzworks #LoveFoodFeelGood campaign.
