Transformations Today

By | February 15th, 2019|Outdoor Learning, Wild things, Year 5 2018-19|

What a busy morning.  Thanks again to Chef Amber who helped us prepare our wild leeks, make a roux ready for the cheesey bechamel sauce and add our crunchy topping to the cheesey leek gratin.

We all agreed that it was “delicious,” “beautiful” and “100%.”  We are keeping our ‘secret’ ingredient a mystery…
