350 cooking in the food preparation and nutrition department today:
Back in the 1660’s people ate meat and dairy as they believed that vegetables were dirty and not digestible, until the writer John Evelyn came along to help us understand that vegetables have health benefits. They also ate all the animal so used more unusual cuts of meat. Our year 8 pupils have watched ‘The Supersizers go…Restoration’, where Giles Coren and Sue Perkins go back to the 17th century to experience the typical diet of the time. Today the year 8s cooked with some of these more unusual ingredients including ox tongue and chicken feet. They also saw a pigs head and full ox tongue.
