Food Tech - Mussels
This week Year 10 got to learn about, handle, cook and clean fresh mussels from Fowey as part of the nationwide Fish Heroes programme with the Food Teachers Centre.
They cooked Thai style mussels in small teams and learnt about the how mussels are one of the most sustainable sources of seafood avaiable with no damage to the sea bed, relatively cheap, supporting the British fishing industry and a great source of protein and omega 3.
Later on Year 7, in their first ever food lesson, took on the challenge and cooked Jamie Olivers 'Angry Mussels' in a tomato sauce and most of the class tried them for the first time.
This was a brilliant opportunity for students to handle, cook and try fresh, seasonal and Cornish mussels, that were utterly delicious (if you like them that is!)
