Class project area: Spaldwick Super Soup Competition
Pupils from Spaldwick Community Primary School used local produce to make a range of soups that were then judged by a panel using blind tasting (some examples of these soups can be seen in the pictures above. All of the recipes can be accessed by clicking the links below).
Pupils from all year groups participated in the competition. The soups were then judged by a panel using blind tasting (i.e. the soups were all given a number so nobody knew whose soup they were tasting).
The pupils had to use local produce, thinking of ingredients and smells reminding them of Winter. The potatoes, carrots and onions were donated by Greg Bliss, a local farmer.
The pupils designed recipe sheets to go with the soups, laying out the ingredients and decorating the sheets to make them look attractive.
The recipes were then displayed in the assembly area and the winning soup was served to pupils for their harvest dinner.

The soups have all been added to the Cookit site. The pupils were very excited about having their soups displayed on the web for others to try.
The recipes were:
