Pupils mix it with chef

YOUNGSTERS from a Vale school got stuck in as they helped to make 500 Christmas puddings at a Pershore restaurant.
Belle House, in Bridge Street, invited the group from Cropthorne with Charlton First School into its kitchens to lend a hand with the preparation of the festive desserts.
Head chef Steve Waites said the children enjoyed the experience.
“It was really good fun,”
he said. “They all seemed to enjoy it, as did the staff, and they were very interested. I think children are starting to get more interested in cooking, which is a good thing.
“They did ask why we were making the Christmas puds now and I explained they needed to marinate with the alcohol for two days before being cooked, cooled down and then put in the fridge for about three months.
“We also told them it brings good luck to stir the Christmas pudding.
“All in all we will make about 1,500 Christmas puddings this year, as we sell them in our deli as well.”
