They have made some delicious dishes so well done and thank you for all their hard work. Thanks must also go to those at home behind the scenes who have helped with all the preparation as well as putting up with their kitchen being taken over! Thank you.
Well done to all the Year 9 students who have completed their work in Key Stage 3 Food. See some photos below of the delicious street food they have made to celebrate the skills they have learned over the past three years.

On Tuesday 6th June, Olivier Trolallen from La Boheme returned to AGGS with his pastry chef, Jennie. This time it was the turn of the students to impress the two chefs with their skills. Each student had been asked to make a sweet or savoury tart with pastry. The end products were amazing. They were marked out of 30 for their appearance, flavour and quality of the pastry.
The four lucky winners, Natasha, isabelle, Georgia and Imela all won vouchers to spend at La Boheme in the restaurant, The two overall winners, Isabelle and Natasha, have been invited to spend a day in the kitchen with Jennie learning some tricks of the trade and making desserts to serve in the restaurant. What an amazing opportunity. As always, big thanks goes to Olivier and Jennie for giving up their precious time and to all the students who took part and made such fantastic efforts to create some wonderful dishes.
This week, Wednesday 8th February, was the opening night of “Fireworks” the new dessert restaurant in Altrincham, next to the cinema. As the three winners of the design a dessert competition that took place in school this term, Sophia, Jenny and Jemima were all invited to this launch event. Sophia, as the overall winner, was asked to cut the ribbon to open the restaurant officially. The three girls were accompanied by their parents and teachers. We had a lovely evening tasting all the delights of the new menu and the chefs created the desserts the girls had designed for them to try. Thank you to all those who entered. The level of effort that went in to all the designs was fantastic and the quality of the work outstanding..
