Gad’s Hill School’s year six classmates continue to impress in the kitchen as they are commended for their confidence and enthusiasm, after making Chelsea buns.

The 10-11 year-olds learned how to make the currant buns in one of their weekly Food and Nutrition lessons, where skills demonstrated included shaping and rolling dough.

This term, the students have been learning about the nutritional value of different meals and the functions of nutrients in the human body, needed to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Head of Food and Nutrition, Miss Rachael Baker, said:  “There were beaming smiles as the children proudly displayed their finished dish – their confidence grows with each lesson and I look forward to teaching them more complex recipes throughout the academic year.”

The Chelsea bun is a type of currant bun that was first created in the 18th century at the Bun House in Chelsea, an establishment favoured by Hanoverian royalty, which was demolished in 1839.  The bun is made of a rich yeast dough flavoured with lemon peel, cinnamon or mixed spice.
