Forty young bakers donned their aprons bright and early on Saturday 17th April to get the Lismore leg of the Waterford Festival of Food off to a flying start.
Boys and girls aged from six to thirteen bonded over a mutual love of baking...and chocolate! The industrious youngsters beat, mixed and stirred their way to a batch of warm chocolate chip cookies that smelled simply too good to resist!
Many thanks to Catherine Twomey who again gave of her time and expertise to run the two fully booked workshops. Catherine was ably assisted by some of her hard-working second year pupils: Megan Barry, Sinead Walsh and Cathy Twomey. Blackwater Community School kindly lent their home economics kitchens as a perfect venue for the morning's activity.
We are also very grateful to our local supermarkets. Wille Roche's Centra, the Wine Vaults, Keniry's of Tallow and Kelleher's of Cappoquin happily furnished the rookie chefs with all their ingredients.
