At the Troop Forum at the beginning of term the Scouts asked if they could make a three course meal for their parents and siblings. They planned an Italian-theme menu consisting of anti-pasti, garlic bread, spaghetti bolognese, apple cake, coffee and mints.
Over the weeks preceding the Parents’ meal they:
- tried out different garlic bread recipes and choose their favourite (ciabatta, garlic, parley and olive oil)
- practiced making meat and veggie bolognese
- perfected their apple cake recipe
- learned how to lay a table and serve a meal.
They also did a lot of washing up and tasting!
Their parents and siblings enjoyed their delicious meal and the Scouts were proud of their new found skills and teamworking.
