L'Enclume

Over a number of months we have been working in partnership with Simon Rogan's restaurant L'Enclume, in our lovely village of Cartmel.  This famous double Michelin Star restaurant, also has its very own farm in the village.  Mrs Battersby accompanied four Class 3 pupils to the experimental kitchen at Aulis in October 2018.  Killion, one of the amazing chefs, took us under his wing and had us all peeling the potatoes, deseeding the squash, preparing them with seasoning for the roasting, cooking and blending.  We enjoyed a guided tour of the main kitchen, met the team, looked into the restaurant and had a peep at the bakery.  The whole team were so welcoming and we all learnt so much.  This has been the final part of this 'Squash Project', which started some months ago, when the whole school visited 'Our Farm' at L'Enclume to pot the seeds.  A further group visited the farm again before the summer holidays to plant out the squash in one of their large beds.  Earlier in the week, another group went to Harvest them, cutting and washing the squash and clearing the bed for the next crop, under the expert guidance of Jyp.  The visit to the kitchen completed the cycle.  The soup was then delivered to school, with each child being able to take some home to taste their efforts!
