Cook School is all about teaching kids the skills they need to eat healthily for life. But we’re also keen to introduce children and adults alike to the foods of new cultures and countries. After all, variety is the spice of life!
So we’re excited to tell you we’ve teamed up with Pho whose restaurants produce fabulous, fresh Vietnamese street food, to spread the word about this brilliant cuisine. As well as being super tasty, Vietnamese food has loads of fantastic vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes, making it suitable for everyone.
From zingy Goi Cuon (rice paper summer rolls filled with herbs and vermicelli) to steaming bowls of Pho (pronounced ‘fuh’) Ga (chicken breast in aromatic broth with noodles), there are plenty of delicious dishes to discover. And now, Cook School students across the UK have got a great opportunity to learn how to make veggie Goi Cuon, thanks to Pho.
Their staff are joining us in schools across the UK to help us teach children how to make this classic Vietnamese dish. Last week, we held an exciting class in Balham, London where 11 Pho experts – including the restaurants’ head chef – helped Cook School teach 300 children how to make Vietnamese summer rolls.
The results were really impressive, and eaten in a flash! The children also enjoyed learning a bit about Vietnamese culture and the restaurant industry along the way. If you’re keen for your school to join the Cook School movement, helping children learn to love fabulous healthy food, ask them to get in touch with us today!
