 The Kids Can Cook Kitchen loved our recent visit to Diary Flat School and the school aims to “provide the best possible learning experiences and environment to facilitate students to become lifelong learners who strive for excellence, value diversity, think creatively and care for themselves and others.”  They believe that ‘everyone can become a powerful learner, in a supportive, connected learning environment based on respect for each other and reflective practices.’ 

I was so impressed by Dairy Flat School… the Kids Can Cook Kitchen set up for a busy day.  We talked about French food, Italian Food and of course what is in our back yards, what do we call NZ food.  There was no shortage of Sous Chefs as they all gave it a go on the Kids Can Cook Kitchen, we learnt that a Sous Chef is a French word for second in charge, we learnt that they eat frogs legs and

snails in France and that we have some of the best food in New Zealand………Kiwifruit, Pavlova, Kumara, Manuka Honey, Whitebait, Mussels, Crayfish, Paua, Wild Pork and of course Pineapple Lumps !!


One of the best things about Dairy Flat School … the fact that there were so many good manners, so many good taste testers as they all came up and gave it a go on the Kids Can Cook Kitchen.   It is all about giving it a go, trying something that you have never tried before, getting up and tasting something just a little bit different…..well done to all of my taste testers, well done to all

 The Kids Can Cook Kitchen found the best tasters in New Zealand at……. There was no shortage of good manners, respect, politeness and mana as these boys and girls gave it a go on the Kids Can Cook Kitchen
