St. Vincent’s Chefs! – Deadline Monday 13th July

Calling all chefs!

We have all been spending more time at home recently and, with all the restaurants closed, we’ve had to do a lot more cooking! We would like to have a special memento of this time by creating a St Vincent’s COVID Cookbook!

Each family can share the recipe of one of their favourite lockdown meals. This could be a family classic or something special you made during this time.

We would like you to send in an A4 page with the ingredients and the method. These can be handwritten on typed. Please decorate your page with pictures and photos. You may need to cook your meal this week so that you can take a photo of the finished meal!

By the end of term, we’ll be able to send out to everyone our St Vincent’s COVID Cookbook, with recipes from all the different families in our school community!

Please send any recipes using the Homework Uploader to the attention of Miss Carruthers or Miss Coleman by Monday 13th July at the latest.

Happy cooking!

  20. Spaghetti aglio e olio
    Spaghetti with garlic and olive oil

    This is one of the easiest pasta dishes to make and is ideal for when you’re not in the mood for a lot of cooking. The recipe varies slightly depending on which region in Italy it is made.

    3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    Half a red chilli (optional)
    Parmesan cheese

    Method
    1. Add spaghetti to boiling water and cook until al dente
    2. Whilst the spaghetti is cooking heat the oil in a frying pan on a low heat.
    3. Add crushed garlic and fry until garlic is softened but not coloured (approx 1 minute) and then add the crushed chilli (optional) and fry for a further minute. Add salt to taste.
    4. Chop parsley and set aside.
    5. Drain pasta when cooked and add pasta and parsley to frying pan with garlic and chilli.
    6. Mix together and fry for a further 30 seconds.
    7. To serve add lots of Parmesan cheese.
