In October 2019, the Livestock and Meat Commission held its second ‘Meat Skills’ workshop in a series of three. The workshop was hosted by Hunterhouse College, Belfast in conjunction with Food Teachers Centre and LMC.

 

With beef and lamb supplied by ABP food, the teachers enjoyed a day of learning and experimenting with new meat cuts, skills and recipes. The focus of the workshop was surrounding the CCEA Food and Nutrition syllabus, and understanding how provenance, assurance schemes such as the Northern Ireland Beef and Lamb Farm Quality Assurance Scheme and sustainability could be incorporated into practical lessons.

Not only was there an opportunity for theory, the workshop allowed teachers to expand knowledge on knife skills, presentation and cooking techniques. The recipes cooked on the day were:

  • Beef with Mango and Ginger

  • Sticky apricot lamb kebabs

  • Steak burger with onion marmalade

The day was an opportunity for teachers to come together and share their ideas, while also learning some important skills to take back to the classroom.

Our final workshop for this year, a twilight session, will be kindly hosted by Killicomaine Junior High School on Wednesday 6th November 2019. The workshop is fully booked, but there will be opportunity to attend a workshop in 2020, building on the success of previous workshops. Keep an eye out on the website for dates to be released, but in the meantime have a look at the photos to see what we got up to on the day.
