Delicious summer fruits were on the menu for tiny tots from Clitheroe who learned about the art of cooking from a master chef.

Children from Bowland Montessori pre school visited Northcote Manor in Langho where they were greeted by Michael Vanheste who is head of Northcote Cookery School. He treated them to a tour of the kitchen garden and showed them figs, grapes, edible flowers, herbs, redcurrant and gooseberries. There were also three new beehives for the production of Northcote’s very own honey. And the youngsters saw that along with being tasty summer fruits are also very decorative as Michael demonstrated when he prepared a pudding.

Bursting with ideas, the children returned to the pre-school to decorate their own cakes with raspberries, strawberries and flowers from the school garden.

Sainsbury’s store in Clitheroe also hosted the children and gave them a wide selection of summer fruits and they also got the chance to see a range of fruit and vegetables grown by local allotment holders.
