The Curry Guy

We were very lucky to have Dan Toombs, aka The Curry Guy, visit our hospitality and catering lessons in March. Dan is a published food author and has written a huge range of books full of wonderful recipes that we were lucky enough to have a go at making!

Year 9 Hospitality students made a chicken Lababdar from Dan’s book The Curry Bible, a delicious chicken curry with aromatic spices added, along with fresh chilli, cashews and tomato. Dan showed students how to portion a whole chicken and use all the meat in the dish. It tasted amazing and our students were thrilled to be taking part.

Year 10 students did something a little different, making samosa filling and learning how to fold pastry to create perfect triangles that were then shallow fried. Students discovered how fiddly this was, and how fast they cooked … they were eaten just as quickly!

Thanks again to The Curry Guy for a brilliant day!
