Chinese New Year

The cooking club were spoiled today when a couple  of our amazing parents dropped by to show us how to make spring rolls. Nicole (Sarah’s mum) with the help of Cheryl (Kai’s mum) introduced the group to the tastes and smells of chinese cooking. Nicole then showed the group how to roll and bake correctly. She also showed the children some traditional chinese decorations.
