EVENTS IN THE PIPELINE
COOK WITH FRIENDS - A SERIES OF ONLINE COOKING DEMONSTRATIONS, WITH A COOKBOOK TO FOLLOW - LED BY NICOLE TREHY - CONTACT FRIENDS TO CONTRIBUTE
We’d like to invite all of the FBS community to come together and cook via a series of live video sessions hosted by a parent, teacher and celebrity chefs.
On Wednesday Nov 4th at 6.30 - 8pm Mike (our fabulous school chef) will be cooking up a storm to launch our series of online cooking lessons for parents on Google Meet. Mike will take us through Chinese stir fried rice, Mapo tofu/chicken and bok choi.
If you'd like to cook along, or get the video link to watch and learn - sign up here - and we'll send you the ingredients/ 'what you'll need' lists and the video link.
Everyone is welcome!
Click HERE (LINK TO COME) for the shopping list you’ll need and click HERE (LINK TO COME) for info on how to join the video session. (The session will be recorded and made available on this page on Thursday 5th November if you can’t make it on the day).
We want to make YOUR favourites too! Friends invite all of the FBS community to send in a family favourite recipe to add to our International Cookbook. Does your granny make a mean lasagne? Does your dad smash guacamole with a twist? Do you fry a bang banging chicken? Send your recipe with your name and year, and a paragraph about why this recipe is the one your family love - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Picture evidence please or it didn’t happen - fab photos of your dish or your chef in action to illustrate your recipe.
And if you’d like to host a video cooking session or know someone who will contact us HERE and we will make it happen!
