Ms. Máire Dufficy from An Bord Bia visited today give a presentation and cookery demonstration to all 5th year Home Economics students. The students were initially presented with an overview of the food pyramid, the importance of healthy eating and exercise and specifically for the Leaving Certificate course an overview of the Quality Assurance Scheme, locally produced goods and Added Value Foods. And then it was on to the demonstration. Penne Pasta with Spicy Tomato Sauce and Sizzling Bacon, Pork Stir-Fry and Thai Chilli Mince were among some of the culinary delights cooked for the students. Thankfully all students got a chance for tasting!
