Student Cooking Class with Chef Bianca!! 27 September

One of our wonderful students, Bianca, kindly led a Cooking Class for some of her fellow Lexis students today!

Bianca studied Nutrition and Gastronomy at University and owned her own restaurant in Brazil where she worked as a Chef. She loves sharing her passion with others so offered to run an activity to teach us how to make quick and healthy toasties on a student budget!

As Bianca was doing the preparation and assigning people jobs she gave us lots of great cooking tips, like the best way to cut, how to tell how an avocado is ripe (it’s not by squeezing them all!) and flavours and textures that work well together.

Our fillings included avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled eggs and bocconcini, flavored with lemon, snow pea sprouts, basil and leek!

We all then sat down together to enjoy our delicious creations!

Many of the students asked if Bianca could do this every day, but we’ve settled for one day next month! Thank you so much for sharing your love with us Bianca 🙂
