This year our HE S2 Enterprise Challenge has had a revamp - after a number of years giving the pupils a brief around  designing a starter for a meal we have changed to an item for inclusion in an afternoon tea menu. The focus of each dish was to include local and seasonal ingredients and the dishes were judged by local chefs, selecting class winners who  remade their dishes (with professional advice) to get a final winning dish.

The quality of the dishes was so high the judges were unable to pick 1 dish so our joint winner are

Femke Andrew, Katie Donaldson, Zainab Haque, Buntu Ndlovu  with their Spiced Apple Macaroons  (2K1)

Emily Franks, Bethan Sutter, James Scott with their Savoury Jammy Dodger  (2T2)

Our sincere thanks go to the Raemoir Hotel/Ethan, The Cowshed/ Sacha, Mrs C Horsfall and Mrs E.A. Horsfall for all their help with the project . A special thanks go to Logan at Deeside Photography for the amazing photos and all his advice to pupils. Thank you all for being so generous with your time and making the event so beneficial for the pupils. Click here to view photo gallery of all the dishes

Last week, a group of S2 pupils took a trip down to Banchory Lodge in the beautiful sunshine.  Upon arrival, Morag (General Manager) gave a tour of some of the fantastic rooms and also a new converted horse box which has been made into a portable bar for weddings.  The pupils were then given an ice cream to cool down before heading to the stone oven where Head Chef Scott oversaw as the pupils created their own delicious pizzas.  

The pupils had a great time and the weather was superb.  Many thanks to Morag and Scott and all at the Banchory Lodge!
