Higher Food Technology visit Jannettas Gelateria

Jannettas Gelateria, St Andrews, welcomed the Higher Food Technology class this week to show the pupils around the business and finally allow them too see and make their Blairneuk Hassel Pear ice cream; the class picked and prepared the fruit in Cupar last week.

The newly created ice cream was given the thumbs up by everyone – pupils, staff, Jannettas team and customers!  This ice cream has been a resounding success and Jannettas have said the product will be used in association with a special dinner organised by Viv Collie, Savour St Andrews, in November.

“It’s been a real pleasure to have you involved in such a special project.  Taking fruit from tree to table and cone.  Giving you an insight into the food and drink industry and the roles available within.  Offering a chance to consider possible future positive work destinations within Fife and beyond.

We look forward to other opportunities to work together with you on other equally exciting collaborations.” (Jannettas Gelateria)

Duke of Edinburgh’s Award

Our congratulations go to Lewis Robertson (S4) who was awarded his Bronze level Duke of Edinburgh’s Award today by Ms Manders.  Lewis has been working with Howe of Fife coaches (Volunteering section), training his dog (Skills section) and improving his own rugby game (Physical section) as part of the award over the course of the last year.

In addition, Lewis had to complete two-day training and qualifying expeditions to fulfil the Expedition section of the award.

Well done to Lewis and the staff team who support pupils working towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Higher Health and Food Technology work with Jannettas Gelateria

The Higher Health and Food Technology class visited Blairneuk House with Ashleigh Downie, Jannetta’s Assistant Production Manager, to pick a bumper crop of Hassel pears.   The pears were taken back to class where pupils prepared the fruit ahead of the impending class visit to Jannettas next week to make Pear Gelato.

Ashleigh particularly enjoyed spending time with the pupils explaining how she came to work in the industry; sharing what she loves about it; her role at Jannettas,  and gave an insight into the art of gelato making.  Ashleigh was also thrilled with the feedback received when the pupils blind tested our new Halloween flavour, to be launched soon, activated charcoal gelato – a new name to be announced by the end of this week!

Staff and pupils would like to thank Dan Cookson (Blairneuk House) and Ashleigh Downie (Jannettas) for their help with this project.
