Cookery Activities


The Long Eaton School ran 2 cookery competitions on our ECO Day, with students using leftover food that had been kindly provided by Long Eaton Tesco.


The 1st competition was a Leftover Recipe Cook Off. Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 had been asked to submit their own leftover food recipes beforehand, the best 5 were selected and they cooked them in the 1st morning session. Miss Bexon, Ms Limb and Mrs Wiles provided support to our leftover chefs and the all dishes produced were of a very high standard, ranging from a spicy Chinese Chicken Stir Fry to a more traditional Shepherd’s Pie. Although the judging was very difficult, due to the high standards, Miss Bexon finally selected Shannon Daly with ‘The Bean Thing’. Made from Pasta, baked beans, tinned tomatoes, leftover meat (sausage), cheese, leftover veg (onion, garlic and mushrooms), it was judged to be a good family winter meal that uses up common leftovers and popular store cupboard ingredients.



During the Opening Ceremony, all the students taking part in the competitions were presented with certificates and goody bags, including very smart Love Food Hate Waste aprons that you will see in the photos. The winner of the ‘cook off’ also received a Tesco £10 voucher!


The next session was the Ready Steady Cook Off using the leftovers from Tesco. Again the students worked really hard and produced many dishes of a very high standard, admirably supported by Mrs Bexon, Ms Limb and Ms Wiles. The winner of session 2 was Oliver Brown, who made a lovely pasta bake using leftover vegetables, chorizo, pasta, cheese and tinned tomatoes. He also made banana pancakes using over-ripe bananas, with caramelised apples and natural yogurt. He demonstrated how everyday leftover ingredients can be turned in to healthy and tasty meals, without needing to follow a recipe. Oliver received a Tesco £10 voucher.


The session 2 food produced was presented as part of the main display in the Sports Hall during the afternoon and was available for tasting. All the dishes received favourable comments from the visitors tasting and especially regarding the creative ways of using up leftover food that would otherwise have been thrown out.


Mr Gallimore, the Chair of Governors, spent some time in the kitchen in the morning speaking to the students and tasting their food and he was also very impressed by their efforts.
