I was so impressed by Wellsford School, great gardens, great taste testers and lots of helpers and tasty treats as the Kids Can Cook Kitchen set up for a busy day making Italian Gnocchi with over 250 kids

Kumara and Potato Gnocchi
350 g Desiree or Agria
150 g Kumara, peeled
150g Flour
1 whole free-range egg, whisked

  • Peel and chop potatoes and kumara and boil in water until soft.  Drain and mash
  • 2.  Add flour and whisked egg and mix to form a dough that is soft like the bottom of your ear. You may need to add more flour. Knead until smooth
    3.  On a clean bench, roll dough into small, skinny sausage shapes and then cut into 2 cm long pieces.
    4.  Poach gently in boiling salted water for 2 minutes, or until they rise to the surface, drain and drizzle with a little olive oil to prevent sticking.

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 !!

Communities + Connected = Smart
Give your kids breakfast and they will eat for a day, teach them how to cook and they will eat for a lifetime
