From the Garden to the Table was the theme chosen for activities to mark World Food Day 2014 at the St Christopher Primary School.
The staff, students, and parents showed off their culinary talents by preparing a range of dishes and drinks using local produce.
Students were able to view the delectable displays in the school’s Assembly Hall.
Teachers apprised students of the various benefits of the selected foods that included banana, breadfruit, carrot, coconut, corn and sweet potato. Facts sheets about these foods were posted around the display area.
Students were eager to sample the dishes that included pumpkin and ginger soup; pumpkin cheesecake; carrot cookies; banana punch; coconut punch and breadfruit punch; a variety of cakes and breads; and pones and pies.
Traditional Barbadian dishes such as conkies and cou-cou and flying fish were included in the sumptuous spread.
