Rydal Penrhos pupils gets crash course in pasta cooking at Bodnant Welsh Food Centre
8th February 2017

A group of budding chefs at Rydal Penrhos got to practice their craft with a top chef at one of North Wales’ leading establishments.

The school’s food and nutrition pupils took a trip to Bodnant Welsh Food Centre on Tuesday, February 7, where they were created a number of pasta-based dishes with executive chef Andy Sheridan.

The Michelin trained chef, who runs The Hayloft restaurant at the site, went through the process of a number of tasty meals including tortellini, and was on hand to lend support to each pupil while the made the food themselves.

Following the cooking session, the group were able to sample what they had created before receiving a special goodie bag from the centre as a reward for all their hard work.

The visit comes just a few short weeks after the Year 10 GCSE food and nutrition group spent the afternoon with Mr Sheridan, where they were taught some of the tricks of the trade from the chef, who has worked under a number of high profile figures including Gordon Ramsay.

Head of Home Economics Lynne Williams, said: “It was another brilliant afternoon and I would like to thank Andy for giving his time to help our pupils once again.

“They all had a great time and it was a very worthwhile experience for them all.”
