A Chinese feast was whipped up by our Year 9 girls and Year 10 Food and Nutrition GCSE students on Wednesday 21 March when a Ming-Ai (London) Institute Healthy Chinese Cuisine Ambassador and a representative from project partner, Lee Kum Keecame to St Mary’s to give a lively demonstration of how to cook Kung Pao Chicken. 

The students turned their hands to producing this classic Chinese dish themselves, which included important prep techniques such as de-boning chicken thighs, chopping and marinating. The final dishes looked delicious!
