Potato gnocchi with parmesan, burnt butter and crispy sage. Rosemary and thyme grissini. Creamy hummus made with a recipe adapted from Ottolenghi’s Jerusalem book… these are some of the dishes our clever kids whipped up last week in the cottage! A major focus for one group was handling fragile lettuce: washing and spinning it dry and then rolling it up to store in the fridge until ready to compile a deliciously fresh and gorgeous looking Master salad with lemon vinaigrette. And we even made crispy herbed potato skins with leftovers from the gnocchi!

The Year 2 students continue their attack on Kitchen Garden – enthusiastically displaying their knife skills amongst other fabulous talents – and one class even got to sample one of our programs most successful and asked-for dishes ever: Globe artichokes with lemon and garlic vinaigrette. They’re very lucky as we’ve had a lot of trouble growing them in these last few years – the last ones we harvested in 2012! Hopefully we’ll have a few more popping up in the next few weeks. And I’m looking forward to seeing the Year 5 and 6 kids back next week too!

Tea towel sales went through the roof so thank you to all who bought early. Year 2 and Kindergarten is SOLD OUT! We have other age groups but I am reclaiming my Monday and Friday mornings for a while so will be back in December – anybody wishing to buy some before then can see me in the cottage at 8.30am or 2.30pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays in the meantime.

Thanks Mx

And thanks for the little mufti Melissas last Friday! Loved all of you!

  1. Is there anything better than sage butter?! Lovely post.

  2. Sounds delicious. Great idea to make crispy potato skins with the leftovers from the gnocchi…I’ll have to remember that one. I bet the kids loved it all 🙂
